A Dhaka court has set September 11 to submit a probe report in a case filed against businessman Moosa Bin Shamsher for tax evasion and filing inaccurate statement regarding his assets at the Swiss Bank.
The court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikary set the new date on Sunday as the investigation agency of the case, Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate (CIID), failed to present the report before it.
Earlier, Customs intelligence started an investigation on allegations of registering a Range Rover vehicle brought in the country under tax-free facility, in Moosa’s name through submitting false documents and making transaction of illegal money, primarily true.
Moosa has been blamed for registering the luxury vehicle in his name by submitting 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 has declared kept in Swiss Bank.
On July 31, 2017, CIID Assistant Revenue Officer Md Zakir Hossain filed the case against Moosa with Gulshan Police Station under Money Laundering Prevention Act.
