A Dhaka court has set November 12 for police to submit the probe report in a case filed against businessman Moosa Bin Shamsher over tax evasion and filing of false statement regarding keeping money in Swiss Bank.

Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikary reset the date after the investigation agency, Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate (CIID), failed to submit the report on Sunday, reports BSS.

The date for the report’s submission was deferred several times in the past few months.

CIID has found allegations of registering a Range Rover vehicle brought in the country under tax-free facility, in Moosa’s name by 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.

CIID Assistant Revenue Officer Md Zakir Hossain filed the case against Moosa at Gulshan Police Station on July 31, 2017 under the Money Laundering Prevention Act.
