Money Laundering

Samrat’s bail extended

A Dhaka court on Monday extended the bail of expelled Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat until October 20 in a money laundering case, reports UNB.

Judge Al Asad Md Asifuzzaman of the Special Judge’s Court-6 passed the order after Samrat’s lawyer Afroza Shahanaz Parvin Hira submitted an application, seeking permanent bail in the case.

On August 22, the same court granted ad-interim bail to Samrat till September 19 considering his poor health condition on a Tk10,000 bond.

In the bail order, the court asked him to submit his passport to the court as his bail condition, and anyway he has to take court permission to go abroad.

Earlier, Samrat secured bail in a drugs case on April 11 and in an Arms Act case and a money laundering case on April 10.

The expelled Jubo League leader has been undergoing treatment at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Hospital since November 24 last year.

In October 2019, Rab detained Samrat and his associate Enamul Haque Arman from Chauddagram in Cumilla.

Rab raided his Kakrail office the next day. Huge quantities of foreign liquor, pistols, and two hides of kangaroo were seized from his office.

He was later sentenced by a mobile court to six months in prison under the Wildlife Conservation Act.
