Bangladesh Charges Son of Ex-PM With Corruption


Bangladesh's anti-corruption commission has filed charges against the son of a former prime minister, accusing him of acquiring wealth illegally.

The commission says Tareque Rahman, elder son of Khaleda Zia, failed to disclose a deposit worth tens of thousands of dollars. It also has charged his wife and mother-in-law of helping him conceal the money.

Rahman was arrested in March and faces several other accusations of graft. He held a top post in his mother's Bangladesh Nationalist Party -- which governed until last October.

Ms. Zia and her younger son have also been arrested by the interim administration, which has been waging a crackdown on graft since taking over in January.

Amir Khasru has more on the story.
