Staff Reporter :
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed two cases against five persons, including Jatiya Party lawmaker Mahjabeen Morshed and her husband Morshed Murad Ibrahim for allegedly misappropriating around Tk 275crore of BASIC Bank.
ACC Assistant Director Mohammad Sirajul Huq filed the cases against them with Double Mooring Police Station in Chittagong in this connection on 9-10 January respectively.
The anti-graft body filed two cases against five persons in connection with alleged misappropriation of BASIC Bank fund, said ACC Assistant Director (Public Relations) Pranab Kumar.
Other accused are former Managing Directors of BASIC Bank Kazi Fakurul Islam and AKM Sazedur Rahman and Director of IG Navigation Ltd Sayed Mozaffar Ahmed. ACC filed the first case against JP MP and Managing Director of IG Navigation Limited, Director of the Company Syed Mozaffor Hossain and former BASIC Bank MP Kazi Fakhrul Islam for misappropriating over Tk. 141 crore.
On the other hand, the second case was filed against the MP's husband and Managing Director Crystal Steel and Ship Breaking Ltd Morshed Murad Ibrahim for allegedly swindling Tk. 1.34 billion.
According to the case statements, Mahjabeen Morshed and Morshed Murad Ibrahim in connivance with some bank officials took Tk 275 crore loan for his firms - Crystal Steel and Ship Breaking Ltd - from the bank's Agrabad branch in 2010 preparing forged documents.
Former President of the Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industries Morshed Murad Ibrahim serves as a Vice President of Jatiya Party central executive body. His wife Mahzabin Morshed is a member of the reserved seats of the Jatiya Sangsad (Female Seven-45).
 "They have been sued for misappropriating Tk 275 crore from the bank. Mahjabeen and her husband took the loan from the Agrabad branch of Chittagong but did not pay back," said ACC Assistant Director Mohammad Sirajul Huq.
This loan scam took place from December13, 2010 to November 9 last year.
Managing Directors of BASIC Bank Kazi Fakhrul Islam and AKM Sajedur Rahman have been accused in the cases as they approved the loan misusing power and without covering the credit risk.
MP Mahjabeen and her husband could not be reached for comments.
