ACC seeks stay on Jaha Alam film

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday filed a petition before the High Court (HC) seeking a stay order on making of a film based on the story of the wrongly imprisoned Jaha Alam.

ACC lawyer advocate Khurshid Alam Khan filed the petition with the related branch of the HC seeking a restriction on making of a film based on the story of Jaha Alam's incarceration.

The HC bench comprising Justice Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice KM Hafizul Alam is likely to hear on the petition today, Khan told reporters after filing the petition.

Earlier on Monday, Khan said that recently they have seen the news of a film based on Jaha Alam's experience, but the fact is the case is still under trial.

In 2014, the ACC prosecuted one Abu Saleque in 26 cases on charges related to loan fraud, involving Tk. 185 million from Sonali Bank. Officials of the bank, however, identified Jaha Alam as Saleque and the jute mill worker was arrested in 2016. Later, the HC issued a suo motu order to free Jaha Alam following a report published in a national daily and aired on a television in February.

Jaha Alam was freed from Gazipur’s Kashimpur Jail after serving three years in prison over the false cases.

Filmmaker Maria Tushar had told the media that she wanted to make a film based on a story from Jaha Alam’s life.

Tushar had registered to direct the film at the Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC). Jaha Alam said he has not heard about the film himself.

The ACC had submitted an affidavit on March 5 over the Jaha Alam incident. On March 6, the HC observed that the ACC has to take the responsibility for Jaha Alam's ordeal, as the commission could not take any step to secure his bail even after getting proof of his innocence in the case.
