MP Shimul and wife purchased property in Canada: Natore activist tells HC

Md Rezaul Chowdhury is a social welfare activist from Natore. He submitted a High Court application today stating that Shafiul Islam Shimul, an Awami League lawmaker, and Shamima Sultana Jannati had purchased property in Canada, including a luxury residence. He claimed that the property was illegally purchased in Scarborough, Toronto. However, their names were not included in the dual citizen list -- submitted to HC, he stated in the application. Rezaul, the president of Sunrise Samaj Kalyan Sangstha in Natore, asked the HC to grant him permission to be a party to suo muto (voluntary rule) issued by the court last November 22. Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder, HC judge, and Justice SM Mozibur Rahman requested Rezaul to provide the supporting documents to support the accusations he made against Shimul, a lawmaker, and Shamima through swearing affidavit. Rezaul was also requested by the HC bench to provide the documents to both the Anti-Corruption Commission (AC) and the State Council. H
