Bodi again fails to get HC stay order
Ruling Awami League lawmaker Abdur Rahman Bodi has further failed to get any stay order from the High Court on the trial proceedings of a corruption case against him.
Anti-Corruption Commission filed the lawsuit with Ramna Police Station on August 21 last year, accusing Bodi of amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 6.33 crore and concealing information about properties worth Tk 3.99 crore in his wealth statement.
An HC bench refused to stay the proceedings against him and returned his petition seeking stay on them back to his lawyer. Bodi's lawyer Abdul Baset Majumder told The Daily Star that his client may move the petition before any other HC bench.
The Special Judge's Court-3 of Dhaka is set to record statements of witnesses in the case on October 27, said ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan, adding that the MP is now on bail.
