PV Desk : A court has framed charges against former Cox’s Bazar-4 MP Abdur Rahman Badi in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) alleging illegal acquisition of assets.
Acting Judge of the Divisional Special Sessions Judge Mohammad Ismail Hossain framed the charges on Sunday (September 13).
The court has fixed October 15 as the date for taking evidence in the case.
ACC lawyer Advocate Mahmudul Haque Mahmud told that the court has framed charges against Abdur Rahman Badi in a case filed against him for acquiring illegal assets. The date for taking evidence in the case has been fixed for October 15. Abdur Rahman Badi is out on bail in the case.
According to ACC sources, the ACC filed the case against Abdur Rahman Badir in 2007 on the charge of concealing information worth Tk 43 lakh 43 thousand 994 and acquiring known non-income assets worth Tk 66 lakh 70 thousand.
Chargesheets were filed against him at the end of the investigation the following year. Later, when Badi brought a stay order from the high court, the proceedings of the case were suspended. After appealing against this order, the case was started in 2017 after a long time.
Abdur Rahman Badi came to the court before the hearing of the chargesheet started in the court. After the hearing began, the accused stood in the dock and his lawyer pleaded not guilty and pleaded not guilty.
