The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Sunday approved two cases against former customs commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam and his wife Mahabuba Islam on charges of amassing illegal wealth and concealing information of wealth.

The anti-graft body approved the two graft cases at a meeting held at the commission’s Segunbagicha headquarters in the capital, said ACC Director Meer Md Jainal Abedin Shebly.

The couple also concealed information of their wealth worth Tk 9.6 million at their wealth statements submitted to the ACC.
