ACC filed the case in August last year
A Dhaka court has taken into cognizance the charge sheet and fixed November 8 for the indictment hearing of Shamima Nur Papia and her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon in a case filed over amassment of illegal wealth worth Tk6.24 crore.
Senior Special Judge KM Emrul Kayesh gave the order in presence of the Papia, the expelled general secretary of Jubo Mohila League's Narsingdi district unit, and Sumon on Wednesday.
On March 30, Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Deputy Director Shahin Ara Momtaz, also the case investigation officer, had submitted the charge sheet in court.
Momtaz filed the case at the ACC's Dhaka Coordinated Office 1 on August 4 last year.
According to the case statement, ACC found that the couple amassed illegal wealth worth Tk62,418,000.
On February 28, the anti-graft watchdog had launched the enquiry against them, several days after Rapid Action Battalion arrested the couple from Dhaka airport and raided two flats they own.
On October 12 last year, a Dhaka court had sentenced Papia and Sumon to 27 years in jail in an arms case.
