The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday interrogated five officials of Arab Bangladesh (AB) Bank over ‘laundering Tk 165 crore’ to United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“A team of ACC led by the commission’s director Syed Iqbal Hossain questioned the five officials from 9:00am to 2:00pm at ACC Headquarters in the capital,” said ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee.
The five officials are AB bank’s Head of Corporate Mahfuz Ul Islam and Head of Offshore Banking Unit Mohammad Lokman and three other officials are Arif Nawaj, Mahdev Sarkar Suman and MN Azim.
Earlier, the ACC also quizzed the bank’s former chairman M Wahidul Haque, Managing Director M Fazlur Rahman and ex-Managing Director Shamim Ahmed Chowdhury and former Head of Financial Instruction Treasury Abu Hena Mustafa Kamal.
Wahidul Haque, along with AB Bank’s vice chairman and a director, resigned from the bank’s board of directors on December 21 amid allegations of money laundering by the bank..
