Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed an appeal filed by BNP leader Barrister Moudud Ahmed against a High Court order revoking plea to stay a graft case proceedings against him.

Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed an appeal filed by BNP leader Barrister Moudud Ahmed against a High Court order revoking plea to stay a graft case proceedings against him.

“After today’s order, there is now no legal bar in continuing the graft case proceedings against the former law minister at the lower court,” Anti- Corruption Commission (ACC) counsel Khurshid Alam Khan told newsmen.

A four-member Appellate Division bench headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain dismissed the plea as it found ‘no merit’ behind the application.

Senior jurist Barrister Rokon Uddin Mahmud moved the case for Moudud, while Khurshid Alam Khan stood for ACC.

On April 8, the High Court had scrapped Moudud’s plea to impose a stay on the graft case proceedings, and the former law minister filed the appeal against that order with the apex court.

The ACC filed the case with Gulshan Police Station on September 16, 2007, for amassing illegal wealth of Tk 7.38 crore and concealing information about wealth of Tk 4.40 crore more in his wealth statement.
