On August 20, the High Court turned down Rafiqul Amin’s bail petitions in the money-laundering cases

The Supreme Court on Sunday deferred till Thursday the hearing on two bail petitions filed by Destiny Group Managing Director Md Rafiqul Amin in two money laundering cases. 

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain deferred the hearing following a time petition filed by Rafiqul's lawyer Sayeed Ahmed Raza. 

On August 20, the High Court turned down Rafiqul Amin’s bail petitions in the money-laundering cases. Subsequently, Rafiqul submitted the petitions challenging the HC's order to the Appellate Division. 

In the petitions, he sought bail from the apex court in the cases. 

On July 31, 2012, the ACC filed the money-laundering cases against the Destiny-2000 chairman and group managing director as well as 20 others, on charges of misappropriating money from investors amounting to Tk 3,285 crore.
