The High Court on Wednesday put a ban on giving opinions by Bangladesh Football Federation President Kazi Salahuddin, Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman and others to the media on corruption and money laundering allegations against the BFF until the probe is complete.

The bench of Justice Zafar Ahmed and Justice Md Bashir Ullah passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed by the BFF chief.

Senior Advocate Ajmalul Hossain KC and Advocate Momtaz Uddin Fakir appeared for Salauddin, while Barrister Aneek R Haque and Barrister Syed Sayedul Haque Suman were present as opponents.

Barrister Aneek said the High Court banned anyone from expressing any opinion in this regard until the investigation by the Anti-Corruption Commission is complete.

Earlier, a writ petition was filed with the High Court seeking directives for the removal of fake and defamatory information in the public domain about BFF President Kazi Salahuddin.

On May 15, the High Court ordered a probe into the allegations of corruption, money laundering and embezzlement against Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) President Kazi Salahuddin, Senior Vice President Abdus Salam Murshedy, former general secretary Abu Naim Sohag and other officials of the organization.
