ACC grills three Abul Khair Group directors
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has interrogated three directors of Abul Khair Group over allegations of amassing illegal wealth and tax avoidance. They are Abul Kashem, Abu Syed Chowdhury and Shah Shafiqul Islam. ACC Director Iqbal Hossain interrogated the trio in the ACC office in Dhaka on Sunday from 10am to 2pm, ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told the Dhaka Tribune. Abul Hashem, another director of the same company, did not attend the interrogation despite being summoned by the national anti-graft watchdog over similar allegations, he added. Earlier, the commission sent a notice to the four, asking them to turn up at its headquarters on December 21 and 24 for integration over tax avoidance, misappropriation of a bank’s money in the name of loan, and for amassing illegal wealth in collusion with some officials of the National Board of Revenue (NBR). In July last year, the ACC received several allegations of anomalies and corruption against some other officials employed by different sister concerns of the business conglomerate, and in an August 18 meeting, it decided to launch a probe into the allegations.
