A list of 13,931 Bangladeshis, legally holding dual passports and citizenships, was submitted to the office of the Attorney General on Wednesday, reports UNB.

The Special Branch Police Superintendent (Immigration) submitted the list in the afternoon.

On December 21 last year, a High Court bench sought the list of Bangladeshis holding dual citizenships, who have built or bought houses abroad and those who frequently use the three international airports.

On November 22, the HC sought all kind of details of the money launderers after a newspaper report was presented before the court.

The report quoted Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen as saying that the government service holders have laundered a huge amount of money.

Many government service holders even have houses in foreign countries and their children live abroad, the minister said.

“I have seen 28 cases and among them only four are politicians,” FM said.
