Travel ban imposed on whip Shamsul, two more lawmakers
A Dhaka court has imposed travel ban on six people including Whip Shamsul Haque Chowdhury and Bhola-3 Awami League lawmaker Nurunnabi Chowdhury Shaon, in order to investigate their links with amassing wealth beyond known sources of income.
The others are Sunamganj-1 AL lawmaker Moazzem Hossain Ratan, Joint Chief of Ministry of Housing and Public Works Sajjadul Islam, former Additional Chief Engineer Md Abdul Hye and Dhaka Wonders Club employee Abul Kalam Azad.
Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Senior Special Court of Dhaka on Thursday passed the order, after Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Syed Iqbal Hossain, who is also head of the inquiry team, submitted an application on June 13, seeking ban on them from travelling abroad.
The court also directed the anti-graft body to send its order to the special superintendent of police (immigration branch) of the Special Branch.
In the application, ACC said investigation related to their corruption is underway, and travel ban on them is necessary.
