The High Court has dismissed a money laundering case filed against the Former Chairman of Ekushey Television Abdus Salam by Anti-Corruption Commission.
A bench of Justice Obaidul Hasan and Justice SM Kuddus Zaman passed the order on Thursday.
Khurshid Alam Khan stood as the advocate for Anti-Corruption Commission and Shahdin Malik stood for Abdus Salam in the court.
Later, Khurshid Alam Khan said that the High Court has ordered only to drop Abdus Salam's name from the case and he will not be prosecuted.
He added that an appeal would be made to the Appellate Division of Supreme Court to quash the verdict.
Earlier, the High Court stayed the hearing for a previous rule on this case based on Curia Advisari Vult (Latin term that suggests reserving judgement until some subsequent day) for November 7.
On that day, Khurshid Alam Khan said that Abdus Salam appealed to the High Court seeking dismissal of the case. The court then issued a rule and suspended the case's proceedings.
Shamsul Alam, the deputy director of Anti-Corruption Commission, filed the case with Tejgaon Police Station on April 13, 2015.
The other accused in the case are Salam's brother Aftabul Alam and former Senior Manager of Ekushey Television Fazlur Rahman Sikder.
The two accused in the case have been charged with purchase, preservation and laundering of foreign currency jointly.
The case is sub judice in a special judge's court in Dhaka.
