Haji Salim to surrender to court today

Ruling Awami League MP Haji Mohammad Salim, convicted of 10 years' imprisonment in a corruption case, is set to surrender to a lower court in Dhaka today.

He has returned home from Thailand on May 5 amid controversy over his leaving the country for treatment.

Being convicted in a graft case, Haji Salim left Dhaka for Bangkok in the name of treatment ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr secretly on April 29.

He has been at the risk of losing his membership of parliament since the High Court confirmed his 10-year jail term in March 2021 in an illegal wealth accumulation case filed one and a half decades ago.

Parliament has not yet decided on his membership.
