The law serve and the lawyer general have said BNP acting executive Tarique Rahman isn’t a native of Bangladesh any more as he has surrendered his travel permit to the British Home Office to look for political refuge in the UK.
Be that as it may, Maj Gen Md Masud Rezwan, executive general of Department of Immigration and Passports (DIP), said the issue of somebody’s citizenship isn’t identified with his travel permit.
Conversing with journalists at the secretariat, Law Minister Anisul Huq yesterday stated, “So far I know Tarique Rahman has surrendered his Bangladeshi visa and looked for political refuge there [in the UK]. It implies he has willfully said that he wouldn’t like to remain a subject of Bangladesh. In this manner, he denied Bangladeshi citizenship.”
The administration can bring Tarique back home under the shared lawful help law regardless of whether he has no Bangladeshi citizenship, he included.
Lawyer General Mahbubey Alam told columnists at his office that Tarique was not a Bangladeshi resident as he has no identification
“Had Tarique Rahman remained in Bangladesh, no discussion would have emerged over his citizenship. He isn’t in the nation now and he has surrendered his Bangladeshi international ID. So I think he is not the slightest bit a subject of the nation now.”
The nation’s central lawyer stated, “Let him [Tarique] deliver the travel permit before media in the event that he has any.”
State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam as of late started a level headed discussion about Tarque’s citizenship. Talking at a program in London on April 21, he asserted that the BNP pioneer had “surrendered his nationality” by surrendering his travel permit.
Tarique served a legitimate notice on the lesser priest and his gathering concocted a clarification that he surrendered the international ID to the UK specialists to look for political refuge there.
Plunge CHIEF HAS DIFFERENT VIEW
Plunge DG Maj Gen Rezwan said citizenship isn’t identified with international ID.
“In the event that I ask you does everybody in Bangladesh have travel permits? Does it imply that every one of them have lost citizenship? The thing isn’t that way. Citizenship is an alternate issue,” he said in light of an inquiry from a writer at his Agargaon office.
Rezwan said it will be an alternate thing in the event that one proclaims that he has surrendered his citizenship; yet it isn’t identified with a travel permit.
Asked whether Tarique surrendered his nationality, the DIP boss said he had no data in such manner.
“Tarique Rahman is at present living in the UK with no travel permit… . So far I came to know he surrendered his international ID in 2014.”
Rezwan, be that as it may, said Tarique recharged his manually written visa once while remaining in the UK as it lapsed in 2010. The DIP didn’t get any application from him for another international ID, he included.
He said if Tarique needs to apply for a machine-intelligible travel permit, he should come to Bangladesh and have a national ID card.
Despite the fact that Tarique does not have any visa now, he can come to Bangladesh with a movement go from the Bangladesh mission in the UK, the authority included.
Alluding to the Passport Act, Rezwan said Tarique would not get any international ID now as somebody who has been imprisoned for no less than two years for moral turpitude needs to sit tight for a long time to get a travel permit.
The BNP pioneer, who turned into the gathering’s acting executive after his mom Khaleda Zia arrived in prison on February 8 out of a unite case, has been remaining in London since 2007.
At home, he has been attempted in absentia and imprisoned in two cases – seven years in a tax evasion case and 10 years in the Zia Orphanage Trust unite case.
He stands blamed in finished twelve cases, including the August 21 explosive assault case
