The commission found evidence of wealth worth Tk47.36 crore amassed through illegal activities, an ACC official says
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Wednesday submitted a charge sheet against expelled Awami League leader Enamul Haque Enu and his associates Harunur Rashid and Abul Kalam Azad in a case filed over amassing illegal assets.
The anti-graft body’s Assistant Director Md Mamunur Rashid Chowdhury submitted the charge sheet to Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Imrul Kayes, court sources said.
The commission found evidence of wealth worth Tk47.36 crore amassed through illegal casinos and immoral activities, ACC Deputy Director Zulfiqar Ali confirmed to Dhaka Tribune.
Besides, the investigation also found evidence that two of Enu's associates, Harunur Rashid and Abul Kalam Azad, had assisted Enu in acquiring assets worth around Tk4 crore illegally.
Mamunur Rashid Chowdhury, assistant director of the commission, filed the case against Enu and his two associates.
Enu was one of the shareholders of Dhaka Wanderers Club and was previously the vice-president of the Gandaria unit of the Awami League, while Rupon was the general secretary of the unit.
Enu, along with his brother Rupon Bhuiyan, built properties in different parts of Dhaka, with earnings from the casino through mutual consent and distribution of wealth among all the accused.
On September 27, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) filed seven cases against Awami League leaders Enamul Haque Enu and his brother Rupon, a day after seizing a huge amount of money and gold alongside firearms from their residences during a raid in Old Dhaka.
CID officials arrested Enamul, his brother Rupon and their associate Sunny from Dhaka's Keraniganj on January 13 last year.
