Amir Khasru’s writ plea dropped from hearing list

The High Court (HC) has dropped from its hearing list a writ petition filed by BNP leader Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury challenging the Anti-Corruption Commission's (ACC) notices that asked him to appear before it for interrogation over graft allegations. The HC bench of Justice Borhanuddin and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order on Wednesday. ACC lawyer Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan confirmed the matter to risingbd.com. The ACC on August 16 issued a notice asking Amir Khasru, a former minister and BNP Standing Committee member, to appear before it on August 28 for quizzing over allegations of money laundering and amassing wealth illegally. On August 28, the BNP leader sought one month’s time from ACC for collecting the necessary documents in this regard. The anti-graft watchdog granted his petition on the same day (August 28) and issued another notice asking Amir Khasru to appear before it at 10:00am on September 10. “If you fail to appear on the scheduled date, actions will be taken against you as per the Anti-Corruption Commission Act, 2004,” the ACC said in the notice. On September 3, Amir Khasru submitted the writ petition to the HC seeking stay on the effectiveness of the ACC notices, saying that the commission has not issued the notices to him in accordance with the law.
