Barrister Nazmul Huda gets bail in graft case

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Monday granted bail to former minister Barrister Nazmul Huda in a graft case.

A four-member bench led by chief justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order accepting his leave-to-appeal petition.

On November 8 last year, the High Court commuted former Communications Minister Nazmul Huda's seven years' imprisonment to four years in the graft case and ordered him to surrender before the court.

He surrendered before the court on January 6 and the court sent him jail.

Later, he filed a leave-to-appeal petition and another petition seeking bail.

Lawyers A F Hasan Arif, Monsurul Haque Chowdhury and advocate Sigma Huda stood for Nazmul Huda and Khushid Alam Khan for the Anti-Corruption Commission.

On August 27, 2007, a Special Judge's Court sentenced the former BNP minister to seven years' imprisonment while his wife to three years' imprisonment in the case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). It also fined Nazmul Huda Tk 2.5 crore.

However, the High Court on March 20, 2011, acquitted them from the charge and later the Appellate Division on December 1, 2014 scrapped the HC verdict and asked for hearing the petition again.

ACC Deputy Director Shariful Islam filed the case against Barrister Nazmul Huda and his wife Sigma Huda on March 21, 2007 on the charge of taking Tk 2.40 crore as bribe from a person named Mir JaherHossain.unb.
