A High Court bench today refused to hear bail petitions of expatriates’ welfare and overseas employment Secretary Khondaker Showkat Hossain in three corruption cases.

Justice Md Rezaul Haque and Justice Gobinda Chandra Tagore returned the petitions saying they cannot hold hearing on his bail due to their personal difficulties.

Defence counsel Shiekh Golam Hafiz told The Daily Star that the law enforcers can arrest his client in the cases at any time as he did not get bail.

The lawyer also said he will move the bail petitions before another HC bench soon.

The ACC filed the graft cases against Showkat with Motijheel Police Station on April 22 on charges of getting an allocation of three plots of Rajuk land for him and his family members through committing corruption and irregularities while he was housing and public work secretary in 2013.

He submitted the bail petitions before the HC bench on June 8 seeking anticipatory bail in the cases.
