SC defers Destiny MD’s bail petitions hearing

The Supreme Court on Sunday deferred the hearing of two bail petitions filed by Destiny Group Managing Director Md Rafiqul Amin in two money laundering cases till Thursday.

A four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain deferred the hearing following a time petition filed by Rafiqul's lawyer Sayeed Ahmed Raza.

Earlier on August 20, the High Court turned down the bail petitions of Rafiqul Amin in two money-laundering cases.

Then Rafiqul submitted two petitions with the Appellate Division challenging the HC's order.

In the petitions, he sought bail from the apex court in the cases.

On July 31, 2012, the ACC filed the two money-laundering cases against Destiny-2000 chairman and group managing director and 20 others on charge of misappropriating investors’ money amounting to Tk 3,285 crore.
