When Bangabandhu was arrested by the Pakistanis in 1971, Kamal Hussain got down from the car in front of the Intercontinental Hotel and entered the hotel. He was not heard from after that. We got news that he has gone to Pakistan. Escape to Pakistan, brother we did not escape. You later became the Foreign Minister of the government by the grace of Bangabandhu. Today Kamal Hossain talks about money laundering.
Obaidul Quader said, what did Mr. Kamal Hossain do, he made black money white. You launder money, don't mention Tarek's name. He smuggled money himself, he smuggled hundreds of crores of rupees through his Jewish son-in-law. The people of the country want to know how much money has been smuggled. Dr. Kamal Hossain himself has evaded tax. He went to court for tax evasion and then filed the tax with orders. Kamal Hossain evaded tax. He now looks at Sheikh Hasina and says big things.
Addressing Dr. Kamal Hossain, Awami League General Secretary also said, Tarek Rahmans will escape, Kamal Hossain Sahib, we knew that you always have a visa in your pocket. Journalists also know that Kamal Hossain always has a visa in his pocket. He suddenly went abroad without even telling his team members.
