Alamgir's Acquittal

Hearing on ACC appeal Sunday

The Appellate Division is likely to hold hearing on Sunday on an appeal filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) against a High Court (HC) verdict that scrapped the 13-year jail sentence against Awami League lawmaker Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir in a corruption case.
ACC's lawyer Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan told The Daily Star that the appeal filed by his client has been enlisted as item No-11 for hearing on Sunday's cause list of the apex court.
The HC on July 13 last year in a verdict scrapped the jail sentence to Mohiuddin in this case filed by the ACC, adjudging the conviction against him illegal.
On November 15 last year, the ACC filed a leave to appeal petition with the SC against the HC verdict.
The ACC filed the case with Tejgaon Police Station on March 6 in 2007 accusing Mohiuddin of amassing a huge fortune through misuse of power.
The commission also charged the former state minister with concealing information in his wealth statement submitted to the ACC.
Judge Shahed Noor Uddin of Special Court-3 set up at the MP Hostel in the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban complex on July 26 in 2007 sentenced Mohiuddin to 13 years in prison and fined him Tk 10 lakh in the case.
Mohiuddin then filed an appeal with the HC challenging the verdict of the special court.
