Anti-Corruption Commission yesterday submitted charge sheet before a Dhaka Court against BNP senior vice chairman Tarique Rahman’s mother –in-law Syeda Iqbalmand Banu for not submitting her wealth statement.ACC deputy director Abdus Sattar submitted the charge sheet before the court.
Another deputy director RK Majumder filed the case against the mother-in-law of former prime minister Khaleda Zia’s elder son on January 30 last year.
The case was filed against her with Ramna police as she does not submit the wealth statement to the commission within the stipulated time.
On September 2007, the commission filed a case with the Kafrul police against Tarique, his wife Zubaida Rahman and mother-in-law Syeda Iqbalmand for concealing wealth information.
Later, the commission issued a notice to Syeda Iqbalmand on October 20, 2011 asking her to submit ‘statements of moveable and immovable assets and liability acquired by her and her dependents in their name or in the name of others, and source of income with detailed particulars’ within seven days.
Later, on January 30, 2012 the High Court stayed the operation of the notice for four months following a writ petition filed by Syeda Iqbalmand with the HC.
However, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on May 3 in 2012 stayed the order, paving the way for the ACC to obtain Syeda Iqbalmand’s wealth statement.
