Rayhan from Al Jazeera documentary to be deported to Bangladesh

Bangladeshi Md Rayhan Kabir will be deported once the Attorney General's Chambers has completed looking into the investigation papers of the case, says Malaysian Immigration director-general Khairul Dzaimee Daud.

He said the department was made to understand that the investigation papers regarding Rayhan's case had been handed to the AGC.

"Once the AGC is done, we will deport him back to Bangladesh. And he will never step foot in Malaysia again as he will be blacklisted," he said at a press conference on Wednesday (August 5)," Khairul added.

Asked how soon it would take to send Rayhan back to Bangladesh, Khairul said the Immigration Department was informed that the earliest flight available from Kuala Lumpur to Dhaka was at the end of August.

Rayhan is alleged to have made false allegations on Malaysia's treatment of illegal immigrants in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic when he was interviewed in the Al Jazeera documentary.

He was arrested on July 24 by a team of Immigration officers from the Putrajaya office and has been remanded.

Rayhan has since apologised.
