He did not submit any legal source of income for the money that he said is kept in a Swiss bank.

A Dhaka court has set July 7 for submitting a probe report in a case lodged against businessman Moosa Bin Shamsher for tax evasion and filing an inaccurate statement regarding money kept in a Swiss bank.

Wednesday was fixed for submitting the report, but Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Debdas Chandra Adhikary reset the date as the investigation agency, Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate (CIID), failed to submit it.

CIID has found some truth in the allegations of registering a Range Rover vehicle, brought into the country under tax-free facility, in Moosa's name through submitting false documents, and making transactions with illegal money, sources said.

Moosa is accused for registering the luxury vehicle in his name by submitting a false bill of entry and evading Tk2.17 crore in tax. 

He also did not submit any legal source of income for the money that he declared was kept in a bank in Switzerland.

Assistant Revenue Officer of CIID Md Zakir Hossain filed the case against Moosa with Gulshan police station under Money Laundering Prevention Act.
