Md Shahid Islam, alias Papul, is not eligible to remain an MP under Article 66 (2) (Gha) of the Constitution as he was sentenced by Kuwaiti criminal court to four year rigorous imprisonment on January 28

Awami League on Saturday nominated Nuruddin Chowdhury Nayan, its Laxmipur district unit general secretary, to contest the Laxmipur-2 constituency by election.

Awami League picked its candidate for contesting the election at a meeting of its Local Government Nomination Board held at Ganabhaban with party President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.

The parliamentary constituency Laxmipur-2 was declared vacant after independent parliamentarian, Mohammad Shahid Islam, alias Kazi Papul, was sentenced by a Kuwaiti court for a criminal offence.

The Parliament Secretariat issued a gazette notification on Monday declaring that the Laxmipur-2 constituency (Parliamentary Seat-275) fell vacant on January 28, 2021, the date of the court’s sentence.

According to the gazette, Papul is not eligible to remain an MP under Article 66 (2) (Gha) of the Constitution as he was sentenced by the Kuwaiti criminal court to four year rigorous imprisonment on January 28.

Papul is currently in Kuwait jail after he was arrested there in June last on charges of human trafficking, residency visa trading, and money laundering.

On January 28, a Kuwaiti court sentenced Papul and four others to four years in jail and fined 1.9 million Kuwaiti dinars (Tk53.19 crore) in a bribery case.
