ACC initiates inquiry into Transcom chairman’s wealth

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has initiated an inquiry against Transcom Group Chairman and chief executive officer Latifur Rahman for allegedly earning illegal wealth. 


ACC public relation officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee told journalist that ACC on Thursday summoned him to appear before the ACC on October 18 for interrogation by the commission over alleged accumulation of illegal wealth.


ACC’s deputy director Nasir Uddin asked Latifur Rahman to appear before the commission’s headquarters with photocopies of his national identity card and passport at 10 am to face interrogation over his and his family members’ alleged involvement in amassing illegal wealth and money laundering.


ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee also said the commission started the inquiry against Latifur after receiving complaints that he and his family members accumulated huge illegal wealth by evading VAT, electricity bills and gas bills of different companies of the group.


ACC spokesman said there are also allegations of money laundering and government land grabbing against Latifur Rahman and his family members.
