The government has sent several letters to the British authorities concerned as part of its ongoing process to bring convicted BNP acting Chairman Tarique Rahman back home from London.
Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali disclosed the information at a press conference at his ministry on Thursday.
The press meet was arranged on the two-day 45th session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (OIC-CFM) scheduled to begin on Saturday at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) in the city.
"The process of writing letters (to British authorities) is ongoing. More than one letter has already been sent in this regard," he said.
The minister added that they are taking further steps and writing letters based on the responses from the British government.
"More letters are being written as the process is ongoing (to bring Tarique back)," he said.
The return of the BNP acting chairman from the UK has come into the limelight following State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam's assertion that Tarique handed over his passport to the British Home Office four years ago.
Later, BNP recognised that Tarique Rahman submitted his passport to the British Home Office as he got political asylum there.
On June 2, 2014, the British Home Office with a forwarding letter handed over the passports of Tarique Rahman, his wife, and daughter to the Bangladesh High Commission in London.
Tarique Rahman, facing over a dozen cases, was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment and fined Tk20 crore by the High Court in a money laundering case in 2016.
He was also convicted along with his mother Khaleda Zia in the Zia Orphanage Trust case, where he was sentenced to 10 years' rigorous imprisonment and fined Tk2.10 crore.
