Four Bangladeshi nationals who plotted to finance terror attacks in Bangladesh were sentenced to between 24 and 60 months’ jail on Tuesday ( Jul 12). This is the first conviction under the Terrorism (Suppression of Financing) Act.
The men – Rahman Mizanur, Miah Rubel, Md Jabath Kysar Haje Norul Islam Sowdagar and Sohel Hawlader Ismail Hawlader – pleaded guilty in May to one or two counts each of providing or collecting hundreds of dollars to fund terror attacks in Bangladesh. When they appeared in a District Court on Tuesday, they were flanked by 11 Gurkhas.
