Prosecution finishes arguments in Tarique-Mamun case

Update : 07 Nov 2013, 07:00 PM

A Dhaka court yesterday completed hearing of prosecution arguments in the money laundering case against BNP Senior Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman and his friend, controversial businessman Giasuddin Al Mamun.

The Anti-Corruption Commission’s counsel Mosharaff Hossain Kajal also filed a petition for an arrest warrant to be issued against Tarique Rahman.

The court allowed the petition and ordered that the warrant be sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for execution.

The ACC demanded the highest possible punishment for the accused.

Defence counsel Masud Ahmed Talukder also filed a petition for re-call of prosecution witnesses.

Masud mentioned in the petition that they could not cross-examine the witnesses and so the re-call petition should be allowed to ensure proper justice.

After hearing the plea, the court rejected the defence petition and fixed November 11 for defence arguments to be heard. 

Earlier, on October 31, the depositions of five defence witnesses were recorded and cross-examined.

According to case details, the ACC filed the case against Tarique and Mamun with Dhaka Cantonment police station on October 26, 2009, accusing the duo of “siphoning off Tk204.1m to Singapore” between 2003 and 2007.
