His petition against High Court order was dismissed

The Supreme Court has dismissed BNP leader and senior lawyer Barrister Moudud Ahmed’s appeal petition – filed against a High Court order that rejected his previous petition challenging the proceedings of a case against him.

The four member bench of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court—headed by chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain—passed the verdict on Tuesday.

Therefore, with this ruling, no legal bar remains on continuing trial proceedings against Moudud Ahmed.

On 8 April, the High Court rejected a petition, filed by Moudud, that challenged the trial proceedings of a case against him while seeking a stay on it. 

The trial proceedings against Moudud are on charges of that he amassed wealth beyond his known sources of income and withheld information about his assets.

Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan represented the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in the court.

Previously, on September 16, 2007, the ACC filed this case against Moudud Ahmed with the Gulshan police station.
