ACC seeks HC order to cancel Samrat’s bail
The Anti-Corruption Commission today (August 29, 2022) filed a petition with the High Court seeking cancellation of the lower court order that recently granted bail to expelled Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Samrat in a corruption case.
The HC bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Khizir Hayat may hear the petition later in the day, ACC's lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan told The Daily Star.
Earlier in the day, the bench allowed the ACC to file the petition with the court seeking cancellation of the lower court order on Samrat's bail.
Samrat recently secured ad-interim bail from a Dhaka court in the corruption case filed for siphoning around Tk 222 crore and channelling it to casinos in Singapore and Malaysia between 2011 and 2018.
Samrat staged a show-down on Friday (August 26, 2022) while appearing in public for the first time in three days after being released on bail.
On Friday, he went to Dhanmondi 32 with thousands of Jubo League leaders and workers to pay respect to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
