Mir Mohammad Helal sent to jail in corruption case
A Dhaka court on Tuesday has ordered to send Mir Mohammad Helal Uddin, son of BNP leader Mir Mohammad Nasir Uddin, to jail in a corruption case filed by the Anti Corruption Commision (ACC).
Mir Helal surrendered to the Dhaka Special Judge Court-2 and applied for bail. Mir Nasir, another accused in the case, has not yet surrendered to the court.
On March 6, 2006, ACC filed a case against Mir Nasir and his son Mir Helal with the Gulshan Police Station over charges of illegal acquisition and concealment of assets.
Mir Nasir was sentenced to 13 years and Mir Helal to three years in prison.
Mir Nasir and Mir Helal filed separate appeals against the verdict in the High Court. The High Court allowed the appeal and cancelled the verdict.
ACC appealed against High Court’s verdict in the Appellate Division. Following the hearing, the Appellate Division cancelled the judgment of the High Court on July 3, 2014.
At the same time, the Appellate Division directed re-hearing of the separate appeals made by Mir Nasir and Mir Helal in the High Court.
Following the hearing, the High Court gave its verdict on November 19 last year.
