ACC files case against Mirza Abbas, wife

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday (Monday) filed a case against BNP standing committee member Mirza Abbas and his wife, Afroza Abbas, on charges of amassing illegal wealth worth Tk. 20.76 crore. The ACC's assistant director, Md Salauddin, filed the case with the Shahjahanpur police station in Dhaka. At the ACC's regular meeting at its headquarters in the capital on Sunday, the commission approved the case against the couple. According to the case statement, Afroza Abbas submitted her wealth statement to the ACC, showing her wealth to be Tk. 20.76 crore. But the inquiry officer found that Afroza Abbas had accumulated the wealth from illegal sources with the help of her husband.

During investigation, the commission found that Afroza Abbas had mentioned in her tax file that she was a handicraft businessman. But she was a housewife as per her passport documents. So, there was no similarity between her passport papers and tax return file.

ACC sources said the commission found dissimilarity between her tax return file and her real wealth. Afroza Abbas concealed her wealth statement before the ACC. Hence, the ACC filed the case against the couple for having amassed wealth illegally and concealing the information before the commission.
