KUWAIT CITY, Feb 2: Bangladesh’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Abul Kalam Abdul-Moamen affirmed that the case involving the Bangladeshi MP, who has been sentenced to four-year imprisonment and imposed a fine “will not affect the relations between his country and the State of Kuwait”, reports Al-Rai daily. Commenting on the Kuwaiti judiciary’s ruling against the Bangladeshi MP, he affirmed that the bilateral relations between the two countries will not be affected.
Abdul-Moamen reiterated his strong dissatisfaction with what the famous MP, called Kazi Babol, did. He was also quick to clarify that Babol was not in Kuwait in his official capacity as an MP in the Bangladeshi parliament, but as a businessman. “He does not hold a diplomatic passport and he was in Kuwait because he has business there.”
