The Attorney General of Kuwait has decided to imprison Bangladesh MP Mohammad Shahid Islam Papul, accused of involvement in money laundering, human trafficking, visa trading, and bribery, for 21 days in the central prison.

According to a report in the Arab Times, the public prosecutor decided to continue the imprisonment of the remaining accused and to release the owner of a company on bail of 2,000 dinars.

Earlier, the Kuwait authorities approached the Central Bank to freeze the bank accounts of Lakshmipur lawmaker Papul and his company.

In a report published on Saturday, the news portal said the financial balance of Papul’s company in Kuwait was around Tk138 crore - five million Kuwaiti dinars - including Tk82 crore - three million Kuwaiti dinars - as the company’s capital.

Kuwaiti police arrested Papul on charges of human trafficking, visa trafficking, and money laundering on June 7. After a long interrogation, it came to light that Papul amassed his wealth by deceiving people and was assisted by influential government officials in Kuwait through bribes, gifts and other opportunities.

So far, the investigation has revealed that Papul used to earn around Tk60 crore every year, excluding various bribes, gifts, and other expenses.

Among the other four persons accused in the case, two are in-charge of the Kuwaiti Public Authority for Manpower, one is a colonel in the Ministry of Interior, and the other is a businesswoman.
