ACC approves charge-sheet against Moudud

The Anti-Corruption Commission yesterday approved charge sheet against BNP standing committee member Barrister Moudud Ahmed and his brother on charge of grabbing a government house in Gulshan worth about Tk 300 crore.
The ACC approved the charge sheet hours after the Supreme Court turned down pleas of Moudud Ahmed and Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain to scrap the case filed against them by the commission, says an ACC official.
Earlier on December 17, ACC deputy director Harunur Rashid filed the case against Moudud and his brother Manzur, now living in London, with Gulshan police station in this connection.According an ACC official, then Dhaka Improvement Trust, (now renamed as Rajuk), handed over a one bigha14 kata plot located in Gulshan Housing Area to Mohammad Ehsan on December 30 in 1961.
Later, it said the land was registered against the name of his wife Inge Maria Flatz in 1965. Both Ehsan and Flatz were Pakistani nationals.
Ehsan and Flatz left the country before the announcement of the list of government abandoned houses in 1972 and the plot was included in the list of abandoned houses, said the ACC official.
He said Moudud Ahmed prepared a “fake power of attorney” of Maria Flatz to grab the land in August 1973 and used it. Since then, Moudud had been living in the house showing himself as a tenant of Maria Flatz.
The official alleged while Moudud was holding different posts as minister and deputy prime minister and prime minister during 1978-1989, he tried to grab the house misusing his power.
He made another power of attorney of Flatz against the name of some Mohsin Darbar in March 1984.
Flatz died on March 30 in 1985 but Moudud made a sale agreement between his brother Manzur Ahmed and Mohsin Darbar using the power of attorney of a late person, said ACC sources.
ACC probe findings also said Moudud has been using the house since 1978 making different fake documents against his brother Manzur Ahmed’s name. – Staff Reporter
