The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has again summoned lawmaker Mahi B Chowdhury and his wife Ashfah Haque Lopa for interrogation over their alleged involvement in money laundering and amassing illegal wealth.
They were asked to be present at the ACC headquarters at 10am on August 25.
A letter signed by ACC Deputy Director Jalal Uddin Ahmed was sent to the couple on Wednesday, said ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.
On August 4, ACC had asked the couple to be present at the commission office on August 7.
But instead of showing up, Mahi and his wife sent an application to the ACC for time extension.
The ACC granted the application and set the new date.
The letter said there are allegations against Mahi B Chowdhury that he laundered money to the United States and amassed illegal wealth.
They have been called to reveal the source of the money, an ACC official said.
The ACC is also taking support and assistance from different banks and other institutions to obtain information about the wealth of Mahi and his wife.
Mahi is the son of former president AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury and also the joint secretary general of Bikalpadhara Bangladesh political party.
