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.

Hearing on the suo muto rule was rescheduled until the submission of documents by the bench.

The hearing was attended by Rezaul's lawyers Abdur Razzak, Md Belal Hossain, and Khurshid Alam Khan and Deputy attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik representing the ACC and the state.

On March 31, the Immigration Department of Police sent a report containing the names and addresses 13931 Bangladeshi citizens with dual citizenship and dual passports to the attorney general's Office for placement to the High Court.

The report includes the current addresses of 13931 Bangladeshi nationals, both at home and abroad.

Later, the report was placed before HC.
