The High Court delivered a judgment stating that the government cannot withdraw or recommend withdrawal of any corruption case moved by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman passed the order on Thursday which was disclosed on Sunday, said ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan.
Stating it as a groundbreaking judgment, Khurshid Alam said the Home Ministry had recommended withdrawal of numerous cases including some ACC cases under section 494, after Awami League government came into power after 1/11.
