A petition has been filed in the High Court seeking directions to remove the propaganda spread on social media about Japanese mother Nakano Erico. At the same time, permission was sought from Nakano Erico to take two children Jasmine Malika and Laila Lina to the market for a walk.
The petition was filed in the High Court bench of Justice M. Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md. Mostafizur Rahman. Lawyer Mohammad Shishir Monir appealed on behalf of Nakano Erico.
Earlier, on August 19, the High Court had directed to produce the two children – in the custody of their father Sharif Imran – on August 31. At the same time, the court banned them from traveling abroad.
The High Court passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed by Nakano Erico, a Japanese national who is the mother of the children.
The CID rescued the children on August 22 after their mother filed a separate case alleging abuse of the two children. They were then kept at the Victim Support Center in the capital’s Tejgaon.
Later on August 31, the High Court directed the Bangladeshi father and the Japanese mother to stay together with their children for 15 days at their Gulshan house instead of the Victim Support Center in Tejgaon. At the same time, a deputy director of the Social Services Division was instructed to supervise the matter. Besides, the DMP commissioner was directed to ensure the safety of their families.
Incidentally, on February 21, Imran moved to Bangladesh with his two daughters Jasmine and Laila via Dubai. Later, Erico, the mother of two, filed a writ petition in the Bangladesh High Court seeking custody of the two daughters.
