ACC asks to revive Ershad's appeal hearing
The ACC will seek a date for the hearing in the case filed against the Jatiya Party chairman after it comes to the bench's hearing list today. ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan told media that the graft case was filed in January 1991 with the Cantonment Police Station in the capital on allegations of misappropriating tk 1.91 core and misusing his power as the president. He was sentenced to three years of imprisonment by a Dhaka court in February 1992. Ershad moved with the High Court against the verdict and the conviction was stayed that year. The ACC became a party of the case in 2012. In 2014 the appeal hearing started at the High Court but the matter was stalled, he said.
