ACC sues United Hospital for dodging tax

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a lawsuit against the United Hospital with Gulshan Police Station on Thursday.


ACC Deputy Director Md Mahbubul Alam filed the case for the Hospital’s alleged evasion of Tk. 21 crore tax to the former Dhaka City Corporation, reports UNB.


According to the First Information Record (FIR), a six member investigation team formed by ACC found that the Hospital did not pay a net tax of Tk. 21, 44, 26,993 since its inception until December 31, 2011.


The Commission placed charges against Managing Director of United Hospital Faridur Rahman Khan, and a former Dhaka City Corporation Commissioner and a member of Assessment Review Board (ARB) of Dhaka City Corporation Rahima Begum for illegal facilitation of tax in favour of the Hospital.


One of the members of Assessment Review Board (ARB) Rahima Begum abetted United Hospital in the absence of the chairman and other two members of board.
