ACC finalizes charge sheet against Ekushey TV chairman
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has finalized the charge sheet for the case against former chairman of Ekushey Television Abdus Salam and two others for money laundering. The case, which was filed on April 13, 2016, also accuses the former managing director, the present Chairman of ETV Ashraful Alam, and its Senior Finance Manager Fazlur Rahman Sikder. ACC Deputy Director Shamsul Alam filed the case with Tejgaon model police station against them for laundering Tk26.7 lakh, confirmed ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya on Monday. Shamsul Alam, the investigating officer of the case, will submit the charge sheet to the court soon, Pranab also said, adding that the ACC finalized the charge sheet under sections 4 (2) and 4 (3) of the Money Laundering Prevention Act 2012. On January 26, 2015, the money was withdrawn from Prime Bank’s Karwan Bazar branch with a cheque signed by Ashraful Alam. As per the direction of Abdus Salam, the money was converted to €30,000 with the help of brokerhouse agents. Fazlur Rahman Sikder kept €20,000 at his mother-in-law’s house in East Dania, which is where Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) found the money on December 31, 2015. Salam was in jail at that time, following his arrest on January 6, 2015, in a case filed under the Pornography Control Act in November 2014. On March 2 in 2016, the anti graft watchdog also filed a case against Salam for allegedly swindling about Tk34 crore by preparing fake documents for business promotion bills, legal, and professional fees, medical expenses, hotel expenses, foreign tour and satellite charges for the TV channel from September 2004 to December 2015, when he served as chairman.
