Muhith: Reports on money laundering in Swiss banks are exaggerated
Finance Minister AMA Muhith has claimed that reports published by the local media on money laundering by Bangladeshi depositors in Swiss banks are exaggerated. The minister made the remark while providing his statement in parliament under section 300 of the rules of procedure of the House, following recent media reports that deposits by Bangladeshis in Swiss banks had increased significantly. The finance minister said: “Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) of Bangladesh Bank recently made an analysis report on deposits by Bangladeshis in Swiss Bank to launder money. The FIUs recently submitted the report to the finance ministry. All this talk about money being  laundered in Swiss banks is exaggerated. But I do not say there is no money laundered from Bangladesh there.”
