Ex-BNP MP Moni, his brother sent to jail
Former BNP lawmaker Nurul Islam Moni and his younger brother Saiful Islam Jamal, also a BNP leader, were sent to jail after they surrendered to a Barguna court yesterday.
They had been at large since a Barguna court sentenced them to 14 years' imprisonment in a graft case in 2007.
Moni, former lawmaker from Barguna-2, and Jamal, secretary of
Patharghata Upazila BNP, surrendered to the Additional District and Sessions Judge's Court with bail prayers in the morning.
Judge Md Musharraf Hossain rejected the bail prayers and sent them to Barguna district Jail.
On November 4, 2007, the same court sentenced Moni, Jamal, Patharghata BNP vice-president Advocate Samsuddin Shanu and Sramik Dal leader Jamal Hossain to 14 years' rigorous imprisonment for using relief materials in the construction of BNP office at Patharghata.
