Bangladesh, Qatar likely to sign prisoner exchange deal  

Bangladesh has already signed two separate prisoner exchange deals with India and Thailand. Now Bangladesh is going to sign a prisoner exchange deal with Qatar. The deal will be signed during the two-day official visit of Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

Bangladesh has taken all necessary preparations to welcome Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani who will arrive in Dhaka on Monday (22 April).

Foreign ministry officials said nearly a dozen of cooperation agreements and MoUs are likely to be signed on enhancing trade and investment, prisoner exchange, avoidance of double taxation, manpower export, cooperation in the field of religion and higher education. 

The government, in a gazette notification, has already declared the emir as a very important person during his two-day visit to Bangladesh.

Some of the Dhaka streets are seen decorated with the photos of Qatar emir, along with Bangladesh president and the prime minister ahead of the visit.

The then Emir of Qatar Shaikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani visited Bangladesh in April, 2005.
