The Interpol has issued a red notice on PK Halder, who is facing charges of amassing illegal wealth worth over Tk 3,000 crore.

Interpol responded to the police’s request on Friday, media reports quoted Assistant Inspector General Mohiul Islam of the National Central Bureau (NCB) at the headquarters.

On Wednesday, Bangladesh Police appealed to the Interpol to issue a red notice on Halder.

On November 19, the High Court asked the government what steps were being taken to bring him back.

On September 7, Halder filed an appeal seeking permission for his safe return to the country.

He is accused of amassing at least Tk3,600 crore and laundering the money abroad while working as the director of International Leasing and Finance in Dhaka.

On January 8, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) also filed a case against him amassing wealth of nearly Tk275 crore beyond his known sources of income.

However, Halder said in his appeal that he wanted to come back to Bangladesh to help the authorities recover the amassed money and sought security upon his return.

On January 22, the High Court ordered the government to seize the properties of Halder and 19 others – including his mother, wife and brother – along with freezing their bank accounts and revoking their passports.

Also, hearing the appeals of seven International Leasing and Finance investors, the court imposed restrictions on their foreign travel. However, Halder managed to flee to Canada.

According to Canadian media reports, Halder is now in Toronto. He is director of P&L Hal Holding Inc, a Canadian corporation.

Halder came to the limelight during the anti-casino drives in 2019. The Anti-Corruption Commission launched an investigation into the involvement of 43 people, including Halder, in the illegal casino business.
