High Court orders Comilla mayor Sakku to surrender in graft case
The High Court has ordered Comilla City Corporation Mayor Monirul Haque Sakku to surrender before the trial court in Dhaka in connection with a case started by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). The court, however, on Thursday also asked the trial court to consider granting the BNP leader bail after he surrenders and submits a bail plea. The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim in its ruling also asked Sakku and the government to explain why the lower court order exempting the mayor from the graft case should not be scrapped. The court’s rule and order after hearing a petition filed by the ACC challenging the legality of the Dhaka court order passed on November 21 last year.

On January 7, 2008, ACC Assistant Director Shahin Ara Mamotaz filed the case against Sakku and his wife Afroza Jasmine at Ramna police station for hiding information on wealth worth Tk1.12 crore and amassing wealth worth over Tk4.5 crore illegally. The charge sheet, dropping Jasmine’s name, in the case was submitted against Sakku on February 4, 2016. After a Dhaka court issued arrest warrant for him April 8 last year, Sakku managed to secure permanent bail in the case on May 5. Later, ACC moved the high court after Dhaka’s Special Judge Court-8 exempted him, instead of framing charges, from the case on November 21. This article was first published on Bangla Tribune
