At least one week is needed to collect all the information about Papia’s property, the CID source added

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police has begun an investigation into allegations of money laundering against expelled Jubo Mohila League’s Narsingdi unit leader Shamima Nur Papia.

“We have recently started an investigation into money laundering allegations against Papia by sending letters to different organizations to determine if she siphoned off money and converted that money to other assets,” a CID official, seeking anonymity, told Dhaka Tribune on Monday.

The official also said letters have been sent to various national and international organizations to identify her immovable and movable properties.

“We have sent letters to NBR’s tax officer, asking him to verify if Papia has any savings certificates, and also to know what kind of passport she holds and so on,” the official said.

At least one week is needed to collect all the information about Papia’s property, the CID source added.

Mentioning that investigation is being done as per the money laundering act, CID's organized crime unit’s Special Superintendent (SS) Mostafa Kamal said: “We are looking into her property and bank accounts. The investigation officer of the case is carrying out the probe, but it is not certain how much time would be required for the work to be done.”

“We have sent letters to different organizations. Based on their information, a scrutinizing committee will analyze the findings. The findings will then be sent to the Additional Inspector General. After that we will go on to filing a case.”

“If any kind of money laundering involvement is determined, she will be brought under legal process,” he said.

When the police deals with money laundering, only the CID has the authority to file a case following an investigation.
