Malaysia to deport Rayhan Kabir
Malaysia will soon deport Bangladesh national Mohammad Rayhan Kabir, who was arrested for appearing in a documentary broadcast by Al Jazeera.
Datuk Seri Khairul Dzaimee Daud, Malaysia Immigration Department director-general, in a press conference confirmed the matter on Wednesday.
But, he could not confirm the date of Rayhan's deportation and said Dhaka-Kuala Lumpur flight may resume after August 31.
He informed that Royal Police is now investigating Rayhan's case and is has been on a 14-day remand.
"Rayhan will be sent to his country following the court order once his remand period completes and the court gets police investigation report," he added.
Malaysia Immigration Department DG also informed that Rayhan's visa has been revoked and he will be black listed from entering the country again.
Malaysia police arrested Rayhan on July 24 for his statement in an Al Jazeera aired documentary.
Earlier on July 3, international news agency Al Jazeera aired a documentary titled “Locked Up in Malaysia’s Lockdown” which alleged mistreatment of illegal immigrants in Malaysia during the process of tackling the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rayhan, who was featured in the video, made several claims of immigrants being mistreated.
