“The court concerned asked to take steps against Tarique Rahman… Steps will be taken as per the court order,” he told reporters after a representative conference of the students of Institute of Diploma Engineers, Bangladesh (IDEB) at Kakrail in the city.
Issuing a warrant for the arrest of Tarique in a money-laundering case, a Dhaka court on May 26 asked the government to take necessary steps to bring him back with the help of Interpol.
The home minister said the then caretaker government laid down several conditions for Tarique to obtain the bail for going abroad.
“The conditions say that he (Tarique) can’t be involved in any political activities for three years during his stay abroad; he will have to appear before the court during trial proceedings of the cases and he will have to inform the court about his health condition through law his lawyer,” he said
But, Tarique violated the bail bond conditions, MK Alamgir alleged, saying all the departments concerned of the government will take necessary steps to bring back him from abroad to comply with the court order.
Tarique Rahman, who faces 16 cases on various charges, including money laundering and the 2004 grenade attack on an Awami League rally, was arrested by the then army-backed caretaker government and later he was forced to leave the country in 2008. Since then, he has been staying in the UK.
