Moudud sued for grabbing houseNew Age Online
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday filed a case against BNP stalwart Barrister Moudud Ahmed and his brother on charge of grabbing a government house worth about Tk 300 crore, UNB reported.
ACC deputy director Harunur Rashid filed the case against Moudud Ahmed and his brother Manzur Ahmed, now living in London, with Gulshan police station on Tuesday evening.
According to the first information report (FIR), the Dhaka Improvement Trust, established in 1956 (now renamed as Rajuk), handed over a plot of one bigha and 14 kata located in Gulshan Housing Area to Mohammd Ehsan on December 30, 1961. Later, the land was registered against his wife’s name, Inge Maria Flatz, in 1965. Both Ehsan and Flatz were Pakistani nationals.
As Ehsan and Flatz (both non-Bengalis) left the country before the announcement of the list of government abandoned houses (the Ministry of Cabinet Affairs) on January 21, 1972, the plot was included in the list of abandoned houses.
In August 1973, Moudud Ahmed prepared a fake power of attorney of Maria Flatz to grab the land and used it to gain his own interest. Since then, Moudud had been living in the house showing himself as a tenant of Maria Flatz.
When Moudud was holding different posts as minister and deputy prime minister and prime minister during 1978-1989, he tried to grab the house misusing his power, the FIR said.
Later, in March 1984, he made another power of attorney of Flatz against the name of Mohsin Darbar (an unknown person). According to the mutual legal assistance request (MLAR), Flatz died on March 30, 1985. But, Moudud made a sale agreement between his brother Manzur Ahmed and Mohsin Darbar using the power of attorney of a late person.
The FIR said the BNP leader has been using the house since 1978 making different fake documents against his brother Manzur Ahmed’s name.
As Moudud and his brother in collusion with each other captured the house, both were sued, ACC deputy director Harunur Rashid told UNB.
The case was filed under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1947.
