The daughter of MA Quayum, a Bangladeshi opposition politician confined at an migration warehouse, has communicated help after the Tall Court compelled the movement office to tolerate by a court arrange remaining his extradition.

The Kuala Lumpur High Court today recorded an undertaking by the movement department’s lawful agent that it would not extradite Quayum pending the transfer of his April 5 habeas corpus application to be discharged from the movement department’s charged illegal detainment.

“We are very relieved,” Arnita Tasnim Ankaur told FMT.

“We hope the immigration department will stick to their word and this won’t happen again.

“Deportation is a very big risk for my father, so we’re thankful to the High Court.”

It is unclear why Quayum was arrested. He now faces deportation.

Arnita said her father was picked up by police on Jan 12 after he returned home from Friday prayers.

He was taken to the Ampang police headquarters, and the family has since been informed that he is being held at the Semenyih detention centre.

Malaysiakini reported that on Jan 18, the Kuala Lumpur High Court granted Quayum – who has been staying in Malaysia since 2015 – a stay of deportation pending his April 5 habeas corpus application.

However, Quayum’s family received a letter from the immigration department last night about its Jan 24 order to deport the Bangladeshi Nationalist Party (BNP) leader, who turns 61 on Friday.

Quayum’s lawyer, Edmund Bon, sought today’s undertaking by the immigration department pending the disposal of his client’s habeas corpus application.

Arnita previously told FMT that her father’s life would be in danger if he goes back to Bangladesh as the family knows of opposition leaders in Bangladesh who “have gone missing or are poisoned in prisons there”.

She also said her father requires medication and regular medical check-ups as he suffers from diabetes, hypertension and vertigo.

When asked about Quayum’s status, home minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said the immigration department will comply with the court order.

“I have contacted his (Quayum’s) lawyer and stated that the immigration department will abide by the judicial process,” he said at a press conference in Putrajaya.

“Until the court decides on his status (on April 5), the immigration department will not deport him.”
