A press release was issued in this regard by the party on Sunday

Jatiya Party (JaPa) on Sunday expelled Mohammad Noman, a former lawmaker of Laxmipur 2 constituency and a senior leader of the party.

He was relieved from all party positions reportedly on allegations of taking money from Mohammad Shahid Islam alias Papul, MP of the constituency, who stands accused in Kuwait of multiple charges including human trafficking and money laundering.

Noman, during the 2018 national polls, allegedly took a huge sum of money from Papul and did not run for election himself, so that the latter could win the seat. 

A press release was issued in this regard by the party on Sunday.

However, the press release did not mention the reasons for the party’s decision to expel Noman, who was also an adviser to JaPa Chairman GM Quader.

Noman was elected MP from the Laxmipur-2 constituency in the 2014 general polls. He was again nominated from the constituency when Awami League left that seat for their political ally JaPa.

However, in a surprising move, Noman did not participate in the polls, paving the way for Papul to become an independent lawmaker from Laxmipur 2 constituency.

Kuwait police arrested Papul on charges of human trafficking, visa trafficking, and money laundering on June 7. 

After a lengthy interrogation, it came to light that Papul amassed his wealth by deceiving people and was assisted by influential government officials in Kuwait on the strength of bribes, gifts, and other opportunities.

So far, the investigation has revealed that Papul earned around Tk60 crore every year, excluding various bribes, gifts, and other expenses.

Among the four other individuals accused in the case, two are in charge of the Kuwaiti Public Authority for Manpower, one is a colonel in the Ministry of Interior, and the other is a businesswoman.
