Zakat irregularities: Sayeedi seeks cancellation of charge framing

War crimes convict Delwar Hossain Sayeedi on Monday filed a review petition with the High Court (HC) seeking cancellation of charge framing in a case filed against him over zakat fund embezzlement.

Sayeedi’s lawyer Md Mujahidul Islam Shahin said the review petition was filed seeking cancellation of charge framing and Sayeedi’s acquittal from the charges of embezzlement of Tk 1.27 crore from the Islamic Foundation’s Zakat Fund.

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman might hear the appeal later, he said.
