Court recalls warrants for Tarique’s arrest

Update : 09 Dec 2013, 07:30 PM

A Dhaka court has ordered for withdrawal of all warrants for the arrest of BNP Senior Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman in a money laundering case involving Tk20.41 crore as he was acquitted of the charges.

“We sent the recall order to the foreign affairs ministry and the deputy commissioner of the prosecution yesterday,” said Ariful Islam, bench assistant officer of Special Judge’s Court 3.

The court had issued the arrest warrant on August 8, 2011. On May 26 this year, it issued another warrant for his arrest with the help of Interpol.

On November 17, the court ordered the foreign ministry, OCs of cantonment and Banani police stations and the prosecution DC to recall all the warrants for Tarique’s arrest in the case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission.

The court said as Tarique had been acquitted from the money laundering case unconditionally, the arrest warrants should be withdrawn.
