ACC summons AB Bank chairman, director
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Sunday summoned the newly appointedAB Bank Chairman MA Awal and one of its directors to appear before it over alleged laundering of Tk165 crore from the UAE. ACC Assistant Director (Public Relations) Pranab Kumar told the Dhaka Tribune that a notice was sent to the AB Bank officials asking them to appear before the ACC on Monday. Earlier in December, ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain and Assistant Director Gulshan Anwar interrogated six members of the AB Bank’s board of directors including former chairman M Wahidul Haque over the matter. Meanwhile, the ACC has imposed a ban on the travel of 16 senior officials of the bank. According to ACC sources, AB Bank failed to provide name or identity of any official in the documents of a Tk165 crore loan from a Dubai-based organization named PGF. Instead, the money was transferred to personal accounts. ACC investigation also found two individuals named Khurram and Abdus Samad as middlemen in the transaction. Besides, some of the AB Bank high-ups travelled to Dubai multiple times, the investigation revealed. Former chairman of AB Bank, M Wahidul Haque, vice-chairman Selim Ahmed and director Barrister Fahmidul Haque resigned on December 21 during the Annual General Meeting of the bank at Le Meridien Hotel in Dhaka.
