Nazmul Huda’s jail term reduced to 4 yrs, asked to surrender in 45 days
The High Court has reduced the jail term of former BNP minister Nazmul Huda to four years from seven years in a bribery case filed during the regime of military-backed caretaker government. An HC bench of Justice Bhabani Prasad Singha and Justice Mustafa Zaman Islam also asked him to surrender before a trial court within 45 days after a copy of the verdict reaches the trial court. At the same time, the court said, the jail term which Nazmul Huda's wife Sigma Huda, who was awarded three years' imprisonment in the case, has already served will be considered as his punishment. The High Court came up with the orders after rehearing a petition filed by the couple. On August 27, 2007, a Special Judge's Court sentenced the former BNP minister to seven years' imprisonment while his wife to three years' imprisonment in the case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). It also fined Nazmul Huda Tk2.5cr. However, the High Court on March 20, 2011 acquitted them from the charge and later the Appellate Division on December 1, 2014 scrapped the HC verdict and asked for hearing the petition again. ACC Deputy Director Shariful Islam filed the case against Barrister Nazmul Huda and his wife Sigma Huda on March 21, 2007 on charge of taking Tk2.40cr as bribe from a person named Mir Jaher Hossain.
