Partex Group chairman's son gets bail
A Dhaka court yesterday granted bail to Shawkat Aziz, son of Partex Group Chairman MA Hashem, after his surrender in connection with a tax evasion case.
Judge Mohammad Zohurul Haque of the Senior Special Judge's Court passed the order after Shawkat along with lawyer Mohammad Sanaullah Miah appeared before the court and sought bail in the case.
On May 25 the same court issued an arrest warrant against Shawkat, also one of directors of Danish Condensed Milk Ltd, as he was absent from the court due to his illness.
But his father MA Hashem, managing director of the company, his mother Sultana Hashem and five others got bail in the same case on their surrender.
