The Kuwaiti prosecutor has approached the Central Bank of Kuwait to freeze the bank accounts of the Bangladeshi Md Shahid Islam aka Kazi Papul and his company.
The financial balance of the company amounts to about five million Kuwaiti dinars, including three million dinars as company's capital, reports Arab Times.
The prosecutor has contacted the bank for freezing the accounts so that the suspect cannot withdraw money. Besides, it will be required to recover the money from the account if the charges are proven before courts
On June 7, Kazi Papul, a ruling party lawmaker from Laxmipur-2 constituency, was arrested over human trafficking and money laundering charges by the Kuwait's Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
The judge of Mushrif magistrate court sent him to jail denying his bail plea on the same day. And, the court denied his bail plea three times as of June 10.
After 12 days of interrogation by Kuwait CID, Papul was transferred to prison on June 17.
The Kuwaiti prosecutor fixed Sunday as the day for conducting next hearing on allegations against the Bangladeshi lawmaker.
At least 11 migrant workers testified against the parliamentarian in the Kuwait court. The Kuwait CID detained them and sent them back to Bangladesh after recording their statements.
