The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Wednesday (Aug 10) upheld the High Court's order canceling the bail of Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat, an ex-Jubo League leader, in a case filed for amassing wealth beyond known legal income sources.
The Appellate Division also rejected the 'Leave to Appeal' brought by Samrat against the order of the High Court.
A three-member Appellate Division Bench led by Justice Md Nuruzzaman passed the order today.
Senior lawyers Rokan Uddin Mahmud and Munsurul Haque Chowdhury represented Samrat in the court while Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan appeared for the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Samrat was granted bail on May 11 in the case of the ACC on the charge of acquiring wealth outside of known income. Dhaka Special Judge Court-6 granted him bail. Later, the ACC appealed to the High Court to cancel the bail order of Samrat.
The High Court cancelled Samrat's bail on May 18 after hearing the ACC's application.
At the same time the court ordered him to surrender to the judicial court within seven days. Samrat appealed to the Appellate Division against this order of the High Court.
