SC rejects review of 

The Supreme Court yesterday rejected review petitions of a conditional bail filed by detained Destiny Group managing director Rafiqul Amin and Destiny-2000 chairman Mohammad Hossain, reports UNB. A four-member bench of Appellate Division, led by Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, passed the order. Barristers Ajmalul Hossain QC and Rokanuddin Mahmud moved for the petitioners while advocate Khurshid Alam Khan represented the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).

Khurshid Alam said the duo, earlier, got conditional bail from the apex court. Later, they filed petitions to the SC seeking review of the condition of their bail but the court today rejected the petitions. On November 23, 2016, the Supreme Court (SC) asked the two high officials of Destiny Group to deposit Tk 2,500 crore to the government treasury within six months to get bail in two money-laundering cases.

After the hearing, the apex court ordered Destiny Group MD and its chairman to deposit Tk 2,800 crore to the government treasury within six months by selling the trees of Destiny Tree Plantation Limited (DTPL), otherwise the two Destiny officials will have to pay Tk 2,500 cash to avail the opportunity.

Earlier on July 20, 2016, the HC granted the six-month ad-interim bail to the two Destiny high-ups on certain conditions in the two cases filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission.
