Earlier in November last year, BNP Vice-Chairman Abdul Awal Mintoo and several members of his family, were also named in the leaks.

The Paradise Papers listed NFM Energy Ltd, a company which uses Multimode Group’s address in Bangladesh. The corporate management of Multimode Group is comprised of Mintoo and his family members.

At that time, the papers contained the names of these Bangladeshi citizens– Mintoo, Nasreen Fatema Awal, Tabith Md Awal, Tafsir Mohammed Awal, Tajwar Muhammed Awal, Foysal Chowdhury, Farida Moghul, Shahid Ullah, and Samir Ahmad.
