Dandy Dying case framing deferred to July 14


The framing of issue in a case filed against BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia and others over loan default of Dandy Dyeing Limited was deferred again on Tuesday.
Money Loan Court-1 of Dhaka set July 14 as the new date for framing issue. Khaleda Zia’s lawyer more time yesterday.This was the second time the court adjourned framing of issue in the case.
haleda Zia’s late son Arafat Rahman Coco’s wife and his two daughters along with Khaleda Zia were made the defendants in the case after defendant Coco died in January.
Meanwhile, Coco’s wife Sharmila Rahman Sithi and her daughters Zahia Rahman and Zafia Rahman went back to Malaysia after Coco’s burial in Dhaka.
Coco, along with his family, had been living in Malaysia for over six years despite being convicted by a court of Bangladesh for laundering money. On Mar 16 this year, the Money Loan Court-1 implicated the four in the case following a move by state-owned Sonali Bank. On Mar 22, Khaleda Zia was also summoned in the case. Earlier, the bank had implicated the wife and son of another accused, Mozaffar Ahmed, following his death.
The bank filed the case in October 2013 for defaulting a loan repayment amounting to
Tk 455.90 million. The other defendants are Dandy Dyeing Limited, Khaleda’s eldest son Tarique Rahman, her late brother Sayeed Iskander’s wife Nasrin Ahmed, sons Shams Iskander and Shafin Iskander, and daughter Sumaiya Iskander, Tarique’s business partner Giasuddin Al Mamun, his wife Shahina Begum and Kazi Galib Ahmed.
According to the case details, Dandy Dyeing commenced business in 1992 with a capital of Tk 30 million. In February 1993, the company took a loan of Tk 131.4 million from Sonali Bank. The bank disbursed a fresh loan in 1996 on an application of Sayeed Iskander. The outstanding loan amount rose to about Tk 427 million on Apr 4, 2010.
The case was lodged as the defendants had not repaid the loan despite they were served notice. – Special Representative
