BNP Standing Committee member Mirza Abbas’s verdict in the case of concealment of assets and acquisition of assets outside of known income has been postponed for the third time. The court has fixed the next date of judgment on January 24.
Today Thursday, the case was for judgment in the court of Judge Manjurul Imam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-6. But the verdict was not ready that day. For this reason, it has been postponed to 24th January. Zahidul Islam, bench assistant of the concerned court, gave this information.
On November 22, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and the defendants presented their arguments and fixed the judgment date on November 30. However, as the judgment was not ready on that day, the court postponed it to December 12. As the verdict was not ready even on December 12, it was postponed to December 28.
From the statement of the case, it is known that on August 16, 2007, ACC Deputy Director Md. Shafiul Alam filed a case against Mirza Abbas at the capital’s Ramna police station. After investigating the case, on May 24, 2008, ACC Deputy Director Md. Khairul Huda filed the charge sheet in the court.
