ACC probing the e-commerce firm over allegations of embezzlement of Tk338 crore

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has imposed a travel ban on Evaly Chairperson Shamima Nasrin, and Managing Director Mohammad Rassel as it investigates the e-commerce firm  on allegations of embezzlement of Tk338 crore.

On Thursday, ACC Deputy Director ASM Sajjad Hossain notified the police's Special Branch (SB) and the Department of Immigration and Passport (DIP) about the matter in a letter.

The graft watchdog has instructed authorities concerned to remain alert so that the two cannot leave the country, as it suspects that they may try to flee abroad.

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Commerce asked the Ministry of Home Affairs to file a case against Evaly over the embezzlement of Tk338 crore owed to merchants, which was taken as an advance from customers.

The ministry also separately wrote to the ACC to initiate relevant legal actions against the online marketplace over the irregularities reported by Bangladesh Bank.

In an inspection report submitted to the Commerce Ministry last month, the central bank said that Evaly's total liabilities were Tk407.18 crore. 

After receiving Tk213.94 crore in advance from customers and Tk189.85 crore from merchants, the company was expected to have at least Tk403.80 crore in current assets, but it had only Tk65.17 crore, the report said.

According to the Commerce Ministry, Evaly will be able to deliver goods or get the money back to only 16.14% of the customers with the company's current assets.

Earlier, Bangladesh Bank had expressed concern over Evaly's liability to customers and merchants being extremely high. 

It was also reported that Evaly did not allow an inspection team to enter the company's replica database.
