Anti-Corruption watchdog also imposed the ban on 22 others on Wednesday

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has issued a travel ban on Sunamganj 1 constituency MP Mouazzam Hossain Ratan.

A letter in this regard signed by ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain, was sent to the Special Branch of Police (SB) and the Department of Immigration on Thursday.

Evidence of his involvement in money laundering was found in the ACC investigation.

On Wednesday, ACC imposed a travel ban on 22 people, mostly Awami League leaders.

The Awami League leaders include Parliament Whip Shamsul Hoque Chowdhury, MP, and Nurunnabi Chowdhury, MP. 

The others  who have been banned from travelling abroad are Jubo League leader Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim, expelled Dhaka South Jubo League leader Khaled Mahmood Bhuiyan, Director in charge of Mohammedan Sporting Club Lokman Hossain Bhuiyan, expelled Dhaka South  Jubo League president Ismail Chowdhury Samrat, and his accomplice Enamul Haque Arman, Kalabagan Sports Club President Mohammad Shafiqul Alam (Feroz), online casino kingpin Salim Prodhan, and Ward Councillor Habibur Rahman Mizan.

A ban was also imposed on Awami League Gandaria unit Vice President Enamul Haque Enu, and his brother Rupom Chowdhury, general secretary of the same unit, expelled Central Jubo League  office secretary Kazi Anishur Rahman, and his wife Sumi Rahman, Lokman Hossain Bhuiyan's wife Nabila Lokman, former chief engineer of the Public Works Department (PWD), Mohammad Rafiqul Islam, former additional chief engineer Md Abdul Hai, Ward Councilor AKM Mominul Haque Sayeed, and former NRB Global Bank managing director Prashant Kumar Haldar.

The travel ban list also includes, Enamul’s associates Abul Kalam Azad (Azad Rahman), an employee of Dhaka Wanderers Club, owner of Zakir Enterprises in Kakrail, Zakir Hossain, and Shafiqul Islam, owner of Shafiq Enterprise in Segunbagicha.

Many more will come under sanctions in the next few days, ACC sources said.

“The travel ban was imposed based on primary evidence of their involvement in money laundering, and they have also been trying to flee the country,” Iqbal said.

The names of the 22 people came to the attention of the ACC when it recently launched inquiries following the crackdown against illegal casinos, and money launderers.

The ACC also filed a case against Gandaria unit Awami League Vice President Enamul and his brother Rupom, general secretary of the same unit.

On September 30 last, the anti-corruption watchdog launched a probe against those who amassed illegal wealth from the illicit casino business.

ACC director Syed was appointed team leader for the probe.
