HC seeks list of Bangladeshis with dual citizenship, passports

The High Court on Monday sought the list of Bangladeshi nationals holding dual citizenship and passports.

The virtual bench of Justice M Nazrul Islam Talukdar and Justice Ahmed Sohel came up with the order while hearing a case on money-laundering.

Immigration and Special Branch of police have been asked to submit the list by February 28.

Earlier, the court asked five agencies to submit a complete list of money-launderers by the date.

On December 2, the High Court said money-launderers can in no way be spared no matter how powerful they are.

On November 22, it described money-launderers as the national traitors and the country’s enemies and asked the authorities concerned to submit their list by December 17.

It had also asked Bangladesh Bank and law enforcement agencies to stay alert to prevent money-laundering.

The court came up with the order following a report published in the media quoting a minister that many Bangladeshis have erected luxury houses and business establishments in Canada.
