SC clears way to sue 2 Destiny top bosses for not submitting wealth info
The Supreme Court yesterday cleared the way for the Anti-Corruption Commission to take legal steps against Destiny Group Managing Director Rafiqul Amin and its Cooperative Multi-Purpose Society Chairman Mohammad Hossain for not submitting their wealth statements after the ACC issued notices to them.
The SC stayed till August 18 the HC order that on August 2 directed the ACC not to take any step against them following their writ petitions challenging the ACC notices.
A bench headed by Chief Justice SK Sinha passed the order following two petitions filed by the ACC seeking a stay on the HC order.
The SC also asked the ACC to file two leave to appeal petitions with it by August 18 against the HC order.
ACC's lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan said now there is no legal bar for the ACC to sue the two Destiny officials, who are in jail in money laundering cases.
