KUWAIT CITY, Aug 30: The Public Prosecution continues its investigations in the case of the Bangladeshi resident, who is also known as ‘Pablo’ and is a Member of Parliament in Bangladesh and allegedly owns a cleaning company in partnership with a Kuwaiti, reports Al-Qabas daily.
Pablo is being interrogated on the issue of money laundering, offering bribe and trafficking in humans. However, the co-suspects in the case, MPs identified only as S.H and S.K., have been released on 10,000 dinars bail each. An informed source said investigations with the two MPs continued for 6 hours, starting at 9 am until 3 pm. The focus of interrogation was their relationship with the main accused.
During investigations with the main accused the men had allegedly received money from him for their ‘services’ (helping get the nod for his transactions).
The source pointed out the Public Prosecution confronted the two deputies with information it had received during interrogations with the suspects that one of them was paid by Pablo 50,000 dinars and the other 370,000 thousand dinars for ‘clearing’ 400 transactions. However, the two MPs have denied the charges against them.
The source also confirmed that involved in the investigations are scores of people linked to the same case and new names are expected to come up as the investigations continue to run deep. The source added, “During the past few days, Pablo was summoned and asked again about two people — a former deputy and a businessman — and his relationship with them, both of whom were earlier released, and this indicates that the Public Prosecution has is not done with them and investigations will continue until all collaborators with the Bangladeshi are identified.
