HC: Finish Ershad’s radar purchase graft trial by March 31 next
An HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice JBM Hasan passed the order on Thursday following a petition by Anti-Corruption Commission over resuming depositions. On April 24, 2014 lower court finished recording the depositions made by 12 out of 38 prosecution witnesses in the graft case. The HC also asked the lower court to complete recording depositions of rest 26 witnesses as well as the trial and submit a report by March 31 of 2017. ACC Lawyer Khursid Alam Khan confirmed it to Dhaka Tribune. The case was filed by the then Anti-Corruption Bureau against five people on April 4, 1992. The accused were Ershad, Mahmud, Ahmed and United Traders owner Shazad Ali and the company’s director AKM Musa. Musa has been absconding since the trial began. Shazad Ali’s name was dropped from the charge sheet when it was submitted on October 27, 1994. Charges were framed by the court on August 12, 1995. The trial was adjourned the same day and did not resume till November 2, 2010. The case accuses Ershad, in collusion with the others, of causing a loss of Tk64.04 crore to the state by purchasing radars for Bangladesh Air Force (BAF) from the US instead of France while he was in power.
