DHAKA: Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Wednesday submitted two other charge-sheets against former Speaker Jamir Uddin Sircar in the case of embezzlement of government-provided private car and fuel wastages during the BNP-led four-party alliance government.
Officer-in-charge of the case and ACC Deputy Assistant Director M Hafizur Rahman submitted the case to Dhaka chief metropolitan magistrate court on Sunday.
Besides, ACC submitted two other charges sheet former Deputy Speaker Akhter Hamid Siddiqui and former Chief Accountant to the national parliament secretariat Ashraf-Ul-Islami in the same case.
M Hafizur Rahman confirmed the matter to banglanews.
On November 6, Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) asked to frame charge-sheets against former Speaker Barrister Jamir Uddin Sircar, former Deputy Speaker Akhter Hamid Siddiqui and former Chief Accountant to the national parliament secretariat Ashraf-Ul-Islam in the case of misuse of government-provided private car and fuel wastages during the BNP-led four-party alliance government.
On December 28, the Anti-Corruption Commission filed a total of five cases against them with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Thana.
On December 29, a Dhaka court fixed February 17 for submission of an investigation report on the cases.
In the case statement, the four have been accused of “misuse of power, misappropriation of government funds, shifting furniture from government houses, and drawing excess gas and electricity bills” during the BNP-led alliance rule.
The cases were filed on the basis of findings by a probe committee formed earlier.
The investigation committee, headed by ACC Investigation Officer (IO) Moniruzzaman Khan, was formed after the Awami League-led Grand Alliance government of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina came to power voting out her political archrival, ex-PM Khaleda Zia.
According to the committee findings, Sircar and Delwar drew about Tk 27.86 lakh and Tk 6 lakh respectively as medical allowances.
Delwar had allegedly forced the parliament secretariat to pay the bills against 12 electric meters instead of one metre of his house, the investigators claimed.
