Graft Case: HC clears way for Comilla mayor's trial in Dhaka

The High Court yesterday cleared the way for a Dhaka court to continue the trial proceedings of a corruption case against Comilla City Corporation (CCC) Mayor Monirul Hoque Shakoo.

The HC rejected a petition filed by Shakoo seeking its directive to transfer the case to a Comilla court from the Special Judge's Court-8 of Dhaka.

The trial of the case will run at the Special Judge's Court-8 of Dhaka following the HC order, Anti-Corruption Commission lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan told The Daily Star.

The ACC filed the case against the CCC mayor and his wife with Ramna Police Station on January 7 in 2008, for their alleged involvement in amassing Tk 4.57 crore illegally and concealing wealth statement of Tk 1.12 crore.
