The commission did not find any legal sources of Tk1.58 crore mentioned in Mizanur’s wealth statement

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has approved a charge sheet against former Awami League lawmaker Mizanur Rahman of Khulna 2 over amassing illegal wealth worth Tk1.58 crore.

The charge sheet was approved following a decision taken at a regular meeting held at the ACC headquarters on Wednesday in Dhaka.

According to the commission, Mizanur Rahman was accused of illegally obtaining construction works of Khulna City Corporation and other government institutions by misusing his political identity. Construction work under the  projects was done by his family members in a substandard manner.

He is also accused of accumulating huge amounts of wealth through drug dealing, the commission said.

On March 8, 2018, the anti-graft watchdog launched an investigation led by ACC Director Manzur Morshed against ruling party leader Mizanur Rahman over allegations of his acquiring illegal wealth.

In 2019, Mizanur submitted his wealth statement, to the tune of Tk2.55 crore, to the commission.

However, the commission found that only Tk97 lakh of the amount came from legal sources. The commission did not find any legal sources of the remaining Tk1.58 crore.

On April 16, 2018, the anti-graft body interrogated Mizanur Rahman at the commission’s headquarters over the allegations but he denied all the allegations.

On August 8, 2019, the ACC filed a case against him. He was accused of acquiring illegal assets worth Tk10.56 crore in the case at the time.

The commission alleged that he had amassed illicit wealth through various forms of corruption, including abuse of power while he was a member of parliament.
