Verdict on Jaha Alam compensation on Sep 29



The High Court will deliver its verdict on September 29 upon a rule over compensation to jute mill worker Jaha Alam who suffered three year jail term instead of the real accused in a case filed by the ACC.


The case has been placed on the cause list of an HC bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader for September 29.
The Anti-Corruption Commission’s lawyer Khurshid Alamsaid said the case was kept in number one for the verdict.
UNB adds: On February 12, the HC issued a rule asking the government to explain as to why directives should not be given to provide compensation to Tangail Jute Mill worker Jaha Alam in the loan default case filed by the ACC.

The case has been kept pending (VC) for hearing.

The ACC filed a case for embezzling Tk 18 crore of Sonali Bank with Dhanmondi Police Station on April 10, 2012.

On February 28, 2015, ACC submitted chargesheet against Jaha Alam.

During the investigation, Nazrul Islam alias Safdar Hossain alias Sagar, who was arrested in this connection from Manikganj district, gave confessional statement with detail of misappropriating Tk 20 crore from 10 banks.

The ACC submits chargesheet against Aminul Haque Sardar, son of Shamsul Haque of Manikganj district in the case. Later Aminul surrendered before court on April 1, last year and since then he is in prison.

Earlier on March 6, 2011, the court asked for detailed documents of 33 cases, in which Jaha Alam was incarcerated, and bank statements as affidavits within April 10.

Jaha Alam was freed from jail on February 4 after the High Court acquitted him in 26 cases in which charges had been pressed.

The jute mill worker had been in jail since February 2016 in the ACC cases for misappropriating Sonali Bank money. The real accused, Abu Salek, is absconding.

Jaha Alam was released after the HC issued a suo moto order and asked the ACC to submit case documents in the form of affidavits.
