SC extends stay on Moudud's Niko graft case proceedings

Update : 07 May 2017, 05:07 PM
The Supreme Court has stayed the trial proceeding of the Niko corruption case against former BNP law minister barrister Moudud Ahmed for one more week on Sunday, reports BSS. A four-member appellate division bench headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha passed the order after holding a hearing on the petition. Barrister Moudud moved his case before the court by himself while advocate Khurshid Alam Khan was present for the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). "The matter will come up again on the apex court cause list for a hearing on next Sunday," Khan told the newsmen. Earlier on April 13, the Chamber Judge court of the Appellate Division had stayed the proceeding in the case against Moudud till Sunday. The ACC filed the case on December 9, 2007 against 11 persons, including BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and Moudud Ahmed, accusing them of incurring a loss of Tk137 billion to the state exchequer by penning a deal with Canadian company Niko for exploring and extracting gas.
