SC asks lower court to resume graft case against Mirza Abbas

New Age Online

The Appellate Division on Monday asked the lower court to resume the proceedings in a corruption case filed against Bangladesh Nationalist Party leader Mirza Abbas.
A four-member bench chaired by chief justice SK Sinha issued the directive after scrapping a High Court verdict that had quashed the graft case proceedings against Abbas.
Abbas was charged with amassing illegal wealth worth TK 5.97 crore and concealing wealth of Tk 3 crore from his wealth statement submitted to the Anti-Corruption Commission in 2007.
The High Court in a verdict delivered on October 13, 2010, had quashed the charges on a writ petition filed by the former minister.
The case is now pending with Dhaka special judge court-6 for hearing of charge framing against Abbas.
In 2011, the commission had filed an appeal with the Appellate Division challenging the High Court verdict.
