Earlier on Monday, November 9, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) submitted an application for the hearing of the case.
On October 24, 2007, ACC filed a case against Haji Selim with Lalbagh Police Station alleging illegal acquisition of assets. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison on April 27, 2008.
On October 25, 2009, Haji Selim appealed to the High Court against the verdict.
On January 2, 2011, the High Court quashed his sentence accepting his appeal.
ACC later appealed against the High Court verdict. Following the hearing of the appeal, the judgment of the High Court was quashed on January 12, 2015 and the Appellate Division directed a hearing in the High Court again.
