The High Court on Monday fixed February 22 for hearing the rule issued challenging the legality of Mohammad Shahid Islam Papul’s MP post.

Justice Gobinda Chandra Tagore and Justice Mohammad Ullah fixed the date after hearing the petition.

Advocate Sheikh Ausafur Rahman Bulu stood for the petitioner.

Shahid is currently in Kuwait jail.

On August 16 last year, Abul Foyej Bhuiya, a candidate (independent) of the 11th Parliamentary Election, filed a writ petition challenging the legality of MP Shahid’s post as he has been accused of providing fake documents and submitting fake education certificates.

Shahid submitted his fake educational certificates which is a violation to the Representation of the People Order 1972.

Then, the public prosecutor of Kuwait had approached the Central Bank to freeze his bank accounts. The financial balance of the company amounts to about five million Kuwait dinars, including three million dinars as company’s capital.

A Kuwait court on January 28 sentenced Laxmipur-2 independent MP Papul to four years’ jail in a case related to human trafficking, residency visa trading and money laundering.

Besides, on June 9, 2020, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in Bangladesh served notices to MP Papul, and his family members, seeking their wealth statements.

They were asked to submit their copies of passports, national ID cards, TINs and income tax returns within 15 days.

The ACC also sought income tax documents of Papul, his family and his sister-in-law from the National Board of Revenue (NBR) on June 18.
