HC clears ways to try Bodi on graft charges
02 October 2015, Nirapad News: The High Court today cleared ways for trying ruling Awami League lawmaker Abdur Rahman Bodi on a graft case filed by Anti Corruption Commission (ACC), rejecting his petition challenging the legality of the trial.
A vacation bench comprising of Justice Md Miftah Uddin Choudhury and Justice Kazi Md Ejarul Haque Akondo rejected Bodi’s petition. The High Court order came as the Special Judge’s Court of Dhaka is set to hear the case on October 6 while the ACC accused the lawmaker of concealing information in his wealth statement.
“The High Court order means the case against him (Bodi) will continue,” ACC lawyer Kurshid Alam Khan told newsmen.
Advocate Probir Hawlader moved the petition for Bodi, who represents Cox’s Bazar-4 constituency in parliament.
The ACC filed the case with Ramna Police Station on August 21 last year, saying Bodi amassed wealth beyond known sources of his income and concealed information in his wealth statement.
