ACC summons Mahi, wife over wealth information

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday summoned lawmaker Mahi B Chowdhury and his wife Ashfa Haque Lopa for interrogation over their alleged involvement in money laundering and for amassing wealth beyond their known sources of income.

ACC deputy director Jalal Uddin Ahmed sent two separate letters, asking them to appear before the anti-graft body at its Segunbagicha headquarters at 10am on August 7 to explain their position over their alleged involvement in money laundering.

According to the letter, Mahi B Chowdhury, joint secretary-general of Bikalpadhara Bangladesh, have allegedly laundered money to the US and amassed wealth beyond known sources of income. Mahi B Chowdhury and his wife Ashfa Haq were accused of obtaining known income extraction assets through money laundering in the US, the notice said.

The notices were sent to House No. 19, Road No. 12, Baridhara, Gulshan, Dhaka.

The ACC sources said that the commission launched the investigation against the duo from June and found that they allegedly laundered money to the US and amassed wealth beyond their known sources of income.

Mahi B Chowdhury is currently the joint secretary-general of the party Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh (BDB). He is the son of a former president of Bangladesh, AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury.
