ACC quizzes Mahi for five hours

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday interrogated Bikalpadhara Bangladesh lawmaker Mahi B Chowdhury for about five hours on charges of laundering money to the United States and accumulating illegal wealth.

ACC Deputy Director Jalal Uddin Ahmed interrogated him at the interrogation cell at its head office in the capital’s SegunBagicha area. Emerging from the interrogation, Mahi, son of the former president AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury, told reporters that he was facing the ACC inquiry as part of political harassment initiated against him before the 11th parliamentary polls. He claimed that a political quarter, which had nothing to do for the nation, was conspiring against him. He would clear the entire allegation against him through a press conference on August 27, added Mahi.

He also said that he has no illegal wealth and he never laundered money.

“If I have any wealth abroad, that is legal,” he added.

The commission officials said Bikalpadhara Joint Secretary General Mahi and his wife Ashfa Haque Lopa allegedly laundered money to the US and amassed huge amount of money beyond known sources of income.

In June, the commission launched an inquiry against Mahi, an incumbent MP from Munshiganj 1 constituency, and his wife Lopa over the allegations.
