Ex-FBI agent jailed for taking bribe in Joy abduction conspiracy

16 September 2015 bdnews24.com



An US court has sentenced to jail Robert Lustyik, the former FBI agent who took bribes in return for sensitive information from BNP activist Rizve Ahmed Caesar, for conspiring to abduct Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's son Sajeeb Ahmed Wazed Joy.
District Judge Vincent L Briccetti of the Southern District of New York on Monday sentenced him to five years in prison and a two-year probation after serving the sentence. The former special agent is already serving a 10-year
 term in prison and the new sentence will be carried out after this one ends. He will be in prison for 15 years, US Attorney Preet Bharara said. Caesar, 36, son of Mohammad Ullah Mamun, vice-president of BNP's cultural wing JaSaS, was sentenced to three-and-a-half-year prison term on Mar 4. He started serving his sentence on April 20.
A Connecticut resident, Caesar earlier pleaded guilty to bribing Special Agent Lustyik for confidential documents and secret information of US law-enforcing agencies between September 2011 and March 2012.
He requested the confidential information to help him locate and harm his political rival and others associated with the intended victim, a US Justice Department statement said.
