A Dhaka Court has ordered the freezing of three bank accounts of Bangladesh Nationalist Party acting chairperson Tarique Rahman and his wife Zubaida Rahman. The accounts will be frozen under the money laundering prevention law of Bangladesh.
The order was passed by Dhaka Sessions Judge yesterday in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) of Bangladesh. The three bank accounts in the case are operating under the British Bank Santander UK plc. Court order will be sent to the British Attorney General office through the Home Ministry of Bangladesh.
Tarique Rahman is living in London since 2008 after leaving for treatment on parole. He is serving life imprisonment for a grenade attack allegedly targeting Sheikh Hasina in 2004. He is facing eleven cases in Bangladesh for money laundering and various other charges. (AIR NEWS)
