ACC okays graft charge against Jamir Uddin

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday gave approval for submitting charge sheets in three cases for misappropriating money by four persons including the parliament's former speaker Jamir Uddin Sirker.

The commission gave approval to file the charge sheets in the cases against Jamir Uddin, former deputy speaker Akhtar Hamid Siddiqui and others, said ACC Commissioner Mohammad Shahabuddin.

In 2010, the ACC lodged the cases with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station.

In a case, the ACC brought allegation that Jamir Uddin and former chief whip late Khandaker Delwar Hossain, abusing their power misappropriated furniture and other goods worth over Tk 6 lakh supplied by the parliament secretary.

In another case, the ACC said Jamir Uddin and former chief accounts officer of the parliament Ashraf-ul-Islam, who is now posted at the post and telecommunication ministry, misappropriated over Tk 27 in the name of medical checkup abroad.

Meanwhile, Jamir Uddin and Akhter Hamid misappropriated over Tk 1 lakh for the same purpose.
