A Dhaka court on Wednesday framed charges against Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) Standing Committee Member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain in a money laundering case filed for allegedly siphoning off Tk 9.54cr to abroad.
Judge M Ataur Rahman of Dhaka Special Judge Court 1 framed the charges against the former Health and Family Welfare Minister Mosharraf and read out the allegations before him.
The judge asked him whether he is guilty or not. He replied negative and demanded justice.
After framing the charges, the court fixed November 29 for beginning trial.
Earlier, the same court rejected the BNP leader's discharge petition saying there is no logical ground to discharge him.
ACC Director  Nasim Anwar  filed a case with Ramna Police Station on February 6 in  2014 against Mosharraf for sending over Tk 9.53 crore to the United Kingdom illegally while he was in power  during the tenure  2001 and 2006.
The ACC officials found that the money was deposited at a joint bank account of Mosharraf and his wife Bilkis Akhter with Lloyds TSB Offshore Private Banking in United Kingdom.
