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.
Chowdhury has the details.
