Senior joint secretary of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Ruhul Kabir Rizvi on Saturday said that the order of freezing bank accounts of BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman and his wife Jobaida Rahman were issued as per government’s directives.
He came up with the comment at a press conference at the party's Naya Paltan central office on Saturday noon.“The order was issued after the application of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). It is the government who ordered the ACC to do it.” Rizvi alleged.
“The BNP is gradually being well-organised under the leadership of Tarique Rahman. Government has got frightened at this. So government has brought a baseless allegation against Tarique Rahman to meet up their political gains,” he added.
On April 18, a Dhaka court ordered to freeze three bank accounts of BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman and her wife Jobaida Rahman at a bank in Egnland.
The order was issued after completion of a hearing of permission suit filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission.
