    A court here on Thursday granted an interim bail to Hall-Mark Chairman Jesmin Islam for one and a half months in 11 cases filed by the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) over the Hall-Mark scandal.

    Special Judge Zahurul Haque passed the order on a condition that Jesmin will repay the loan taken from Sonali Bank against Hall-Mark’s name.

    The ongoing SSC examination of Jesmin’s son was also taken into account on humanitarian ground while granting the bail on an undertaking of Tk 50,000, court sources said.

    Opposing the bail prayer for Jesmin, ACC lawyer Mosharraf Hossain Kajal said the bail can be given if the accused promises to repay the loan.

    Jesmin was interrogated by ACC officials for several remands after her arrest by Rab from Manikganj on November 7 last year.

    Several Hall-Mark officials, including its Managing Director Tanvir Mahmud, are now in custody in connection the Hall-Mark scandal.

    Sonali Bank's Ruposhi Bangla Hotel branch lent Tk 3,606 crore to the Hall-Mark Group, T and Brothers, Paragon Group, Nakshi Knit, DN Sports and Khanjahan Ali violating banking rules. Of the amount, Hall-Mark alone swindled Tk 2,686 crore.

    On Oct 4, 2012, the ACC filed the 11 cases against 27 people, including seven Hall-Mark officials, following the publication of the scandal in different media.

    Twenty Sonali Bank officials were among the accused.
