A Dhaka court has placed MA Kader, chairman of Crescent Leather Products and Crescent Tanneries, on a three-day remand in a case filed in connection with laundering Tk 919 crore in foreign currencies.
Metropolitan Magistrate Md Millat Hosen passed the order after Inspector of Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate (CIID) Shakera Khatun, also the investigating officer of the case, produced MA Kader before it with a five-day remand prayer.
Meantime, defence lawyer submitted a petition seeking Kader’s bail along with the cancellation of the remand prayer.
On January 30, Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate arrested Kader in connection with three separate cases filed with Chawkbazar Police Station in the capital over laundering Tk 919 crore. The following day, he was sent to jail after being produced before another Dhaka court.
Shakera Khatun earlier said she found evidence of charges brought against the accused, and that Kader should be in prison until the probe is completed.
