Two Bangladeshi Former Ministers Sent to Jail


A Dhaka court Wednesday sent two former Bangladeshi ministers, convicted in graft charges, to prison when they surrendered before the trial court. The judge ordered former communications minister Anwar Hossain Manju and former state minister for law Shahjahan Omar to jail on their surrender.

A special court dealing with graft cases had tried the two in absentia. Omar was sentenced to 13 years in prison for amassing wealth illegally and Manju was sentenced to 32 years on a number of corruption charges.

Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
