President leaves for Europe today for treatment

Bangladesh President Abdul Hamid will leave for Europe today on a 14-day medical tour for a health check-up and the treatment of an eye problem.

President’s press secretary Joynal Abedin told UNB that the head-of-state will leave for London and Germany on a VVIP flight of Qatar Airways from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport early in the morning.

The press secretary also said that the President is expected to return home on an aircraft of Biman Bangladesh Airlines on October 22.

The 77-year-old President has long been suffering from glaucoma, a group of eye conditions that damage the optical nerve.
