Friend and business partner of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia's elder son Tarique Rahman, Giasuddin Al Mamun, has been sentenced to seven years of prison and a Tk12 crore fine, over charges of money laundering.

Dhaka Special Court 3 Judge, Abu Sayed Dilzar Hossain, gave the order around 12:30pm on Wednesday.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against Mamun, with the Cantonment police station on September 22, 2011, for siphoning off £418,853 to the UK. 

The ACC submitted a charge sheet to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court in Dhaka on April 29, 2012, alleging that Mamun had siphoned off the money.

On April 29, 2013, the ACC submitted the charge sheet showing 13 people as prosecution witnesses in the case. 

According to the First Information Report (FIR), Mamun opened two accounts with a London branch of the NatWest Bank and laundered the money.

Of the total amount, £214,356 pounds were found in one of the accounts. The money was deposited between July 2003 and January 2005.
