HC issues show cause notice to ACC on Ilyas wealth report

A High Court bench yesterday issued a show-cause notice to the Anti-corruption Commission (ACC) chairman, ACC secretary, the deputy director of the commission's Sylhet office and the law secretary as to why the issuance of an ACC notice asking for the wealth statement of M Ilyas Ali should not be declared illegal.
The court ordered the respondents to reply within six weeks after former lawmaker and Sylhet district BNP convener M Ilyas Ali filed a writ with the bench comprising Justice Abu Nayeem Muminur Rahman and Justice Shahidul Islam.
ACC Sylhet Deputy Director Nasir Uddin issued the notice on Ilyas on January 28 asking for his wealth statement. Ilyas through his lawyer submitted the statement on February 14 showing his total wealth worth Tk 4 crore.
Other respondents of the show-cause notice are ACC Chairman Lt Gen (retd) Hasan Mashhud Chowdhury and secretaries of the ACC and the law ministry.
