A special court here on Tuesday extended till May 23 the period of bail granted to Grameen Telecom Chairman and Nobel Laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus and three others in a case filed against them for violating labour law.

Judge MA Awal of Labour Appellate Tribunal passed the order as Dr Muhammad Yunus appeared before the court and pleaded for permanent bail in the case.
