A special court yesterday sentenced former state minister and Awami League leader Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya's son Sajedul Islam Chowdhury alias Dipu Chowdhury to 3 years' rigorous imprisonment for not submitting his wealth statement to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Judge Sirajul Islam of Special Judge's Court-7, set up on the Jatiya Sangsad premises, also fined Dipu Tk 5 lakh, in default of which he will spend an additional year in jail.
Dipu was sentenced under section 26 (2) (Ka) of ACC Act 2004.
The court ordered that the verdict would take effect from the day Dipu surrenders to the court or is arrested. At present he is on the run.
The ACC filed the case against Dipu Chowdhury on November 22 last year showing him absconding.
