An article in UK's Guardian newspaper claimed that Bangladesh authorities had seriously mistreated Moustafa in detention and that officials of MI5, the UK's counter-intelligence agency, may have been complicit.
However, a British High Commission spokesman said that the British government had no involvement in the 'serious mistreatment' of Gholam Moustafa, an alleged leader of the banned Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI). The Bangladesh foreign ministry also said that it has no information proving that Moustafa, a Briton, had been mistreated by its own law-enforcement officers.
Saida Muna Tasneem, a director general from the foreign ministry, said that the government would investigate any allegation of this kind.
