Former BASIC Bank chairman interrogated by ACC
Former BASIC Bank chairman Sheikh Abdul Hye Bachchu has claimed he is cooperating with Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) by revealing information about cases filed over a Tk5,000 crore loan scam. He was talking to journalists following an interrogation by the national anti-graft watchdog at its headquarters in Dhaka on Monday. A nine-member ACC team, led by its directors Zayed Hossain Khan and Syed Iqbal Hossain, grilled him over the scam, ACC Deputy Director and Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya said. “ACC officials are investigating the matter [scam], and they quizzed me in this regard. I cooperated with them by providing information as much as I could. If asked, I will face them again,” Bachchu said. Asked whether he was involved in the alleged scam, Bachchu said: “Investigation is underway, and the allegations brought against me have yet to be proven. So, it is difficult for me to say whether or not I am guilty.” ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahood said the investigators concerned would decide on their course of action once the investigation is finished. Earlier, 10 other members of the bank's former governing body were interrogated by the ACC. ACC filed some 18 cases with three police stations in Dhaka in September, 2015 in connection with alleged irregularities and corruption in the bank by its top officials.
