MP Mohammad Shahid Islam Papul.
Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen on Sunday said the Kuwaiti government is yet to inform anything about conviction of Bangladeshi MP Mohammad Shahid Islam alias Kazi Papul in a case related to human trafficking, residency visa trading and money laundering.
He admitted to bribing millions of Kuwaiti dinars to the Kuwaiti officials for securing work visas unlawfully and getting job contracts for his company Marafie Kuwaitia Group where he held the position of managing director and CEO.
Papul’s action regrettable
Momen said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked the Bangladesh Ambassador to Kuwait to get the official document.
The Foreign Minister pointed out that Papul did not go to Kuwait using a diplomatic passport or as an MP but he went there as a businessman.
“But it’s regrettable,” he said adding that they feel proud when any Bangladeshi does something good abroad and get hurt when someone commits misdeeds.
Dr Momen said Papul committed misdeeds and it is a matter of shame.
