The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) has failed to reach a unanimous decision over the probe report prepared on the graft allegation against Awami League MP Enamul Haque.
“I suggest no case should be filed against Enamul Haque, but commissioner Dr Nasir Uddin Ahmed recommends suing him,” ACC commissioner M Shahabuddin told on Wednesday.
On September 16, 2014, ACC inquiry officer Jatan Kumar Roy submitted his report on the graft allegation against Enamul to the Commission recommending that the Awami League MP be sued on charge of illegal wealth accumulation.
Shahabuddin said the probe report prepared considering ‘the individual and company’ as a unique entity is full of error. “The inquiry officer should look for whether Enamul has acquired wealth abusing his power or not,” he added.
Shahabuddin said the commission will sit together on Monday next to discus the probe report.
According to the probe report, Enamul illegally accumulated wealth worth Tk 213 crore during the 2009-2014 tenure of the Awami League-led government.
He allegedly concealed information about Tk. 213 crore in his wealth statement submitted to the ACC early this year.
Early this year, the ACC launched a probe against Enamul, an MP from Rajshshi 4 and six other politicians following allegations that they accumulated an unusual amount of wealth during the last Awami League government.
