Ex-minister Aminul to be charged

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has approved the charge sheet against former posts and telecommunications minister Aminul Haque and his brother-in-law in a case filed for laundering more than $1.7 million.
The commission in its regular meeting on Thursday gave the approval to the charge sheet for its submission to a trial court.
BNP leader Aminul, in collusion with his brother-in-law Mizanur Rahman, took a bribe of $1,708,145 from a foreign telecommunications company, abusing his power, said investigation officer of the case Shahin Ara Momtaz, also a deputy director of the commission.
The duo realised the bribe from German telecom engineering giant Siemens for awarding it a $40 million work order of the state-run telecommunications company-- Teletalk -- in 2003-04 fiscal year, she said.
Aminul and Mizanur then laundered the money to Hong Kong, she added.
Despite several notices, neither of them appeared before the ACC to give their statement in this connection, Shahin said adding that Mizanur has a US citizenship and he lives there permanently.
The case was filed with Ramna Model Police Station on June 7, 2012 by ACC Deputy Director Tawfiqul Islam.
