Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has quizzed ruling party lawmaker from Rajshahi 4 constituency MP Enamul Haque following the allegation of accumulation of illegal wealth.
The ACC authority started quizzing Enamul at 9am and it continued till 10:30am, Pranab Kumar Bhattacharia, public relations officer of the anti-corruption body, told the Dhaka Tribune.
Ratan Kumar Roy, a deputy director of ACC and also the investigation officer, has recorded his statement at ACC headquarters in the capital on Monday.
After completing the session, Enamul told the journalists: "I do not have any illegal wealth. The statement that I submitted with the Election Commission was authintic. I am sure about it and can challenge the allegations.”
Replying to a query, he said: "I was a successful businessperson and then I became a lawmaker. So, the growth of my wealth is normal."
Earlier on March 9 of the year, ACC served a notice to the lawmaker and his wife Tahura Haque asking them to submit a furnished wealth statement containing lists of their all movable and immovable properties within next seven working days.
However, Enamul ignored the notice and sought extension of time. The ACC later granted extension of deadline till March 31, though Enamul failed to file the statement again.
Later on April 1, Enamul served the statement to ACC, but the commission denied to receive the wealth statement as the deadline expires on March 31.
