বুধবার, ০৯ নভেম্বর ২০১৬

09 November 2016 The High Court today directed former BNP foreign minister M Morshed Khan, his wife Nasrin Khan and their son Faisal Morshed Khan to surrender before the lower court concerned in six weeks in a money laundering case.

The High Court however asked the lower court to grant them bail after their surrender.

Delivering a verdict on a revision petition file by the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC), the High Court extended till March 31 next year its earlier order for freezing the bank accounts of Morshed, Nasrin and their son Faisal with Standard Chartered Bank in Hong Kong.

The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice JBM Hassan also permitted the ACC to investigate into the money launder case.

The ACC filed the case in 2013 and gave a final report to a Dhaka court in July 2015 saying they did not launder money. The court accepted the report on April 15 this year and exempted the three.

Hong Kong police, who had frozen the accounts in 2008 under an administrative order, sent a letter to ACC asking if legal proceeding were ongoing as they planned on opening the accounts, according to the ACC.

ACC then submitted two petitions to the Dhaka court seeking to revive and reinvestigate the case. The court rejected the petitions on June 2 and ACC moved the revision petition on June 5 challenging the rejection.
