DHAKA: A Dhaka court on Thursday rejected the bail plea of Giasuddin Al Mamun, a businessman and friend of BNP vice-chairman Tarique Rahman, in an extortion case.
Dhaka Metropolitan session judge, Md Johurul Haque, passed the order after hearing.
On May 27 in 2007, contractor Khan Md Aftab Uddin filed the case against Mamun over Tk 13,200,000 extortion charge but Mamun managed bail from the High Court through quashed appeal.
Besides, July 21 in 2011, Mamun’s bail turned out to be invalided as the High Court discarded his quashed appeal.
Later, on February 14 of this year, the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court also denied his bail plea.
Earlier on January 30 in 2007, Mamun was held by joint forces. Over 20 criminal cases were filed against him condemning many allegations including extortion, corruption, money-laundering, tax dodging.
He is still in imprisonment as his plea for bail discarded in several cases.
