Police in Bangladesh say a former lawmaker has been sentenced to three years in jail, the nation's first conviction of a politician under an anti-corruption drive.
Shamin Osman of the Awami League party was found guilty of failing to submit his financial records to the anti-corruption commission.
Osman is the first of many prominent figures to be sentenced after the military-backed interim government pledged to clean up Bangladesh's notoriously corrupt politics.
The interim government began its crackdown soon after it was set up in January, when a state of emergency was declared in the wake of violent street protests.
More than 100 top politicians and former ministers have been detained, including the son of former prime minister Khaleda Zia.
The interim government has promised to carry out sweeping reforms before announcing a new date for elections.
The head of the caretaker administration, Fakhruddin Ahmed, has said that polls will be held before the end of 2008.
