3 Jamuna Bank officials among 4 to be sued

The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) is set to file a case against four people, including three officials of Jamuna Bank, on charge of
misappropriating about Tk 8.01 crore.The Commission at a meeting on Tuesday gave an approval to file a case against them under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1947, ACC sources said.

Managing director of Rayhan Packaging Industries Limited Yusuf Hossain, former manager of Jamuna Bank’s Shantinagar Branch Belal Hossain, assistant vice president AKM Shah Alam (Shantinagar Branch) and first assistant vice president Biplob Kumar Chakrawarty will be sued in this connection.

During the ACC’s inquiry, it was found that the Packaging Industries Limited earlier opened 13 letters of credits (LCs) at Shantinagar Branch of Jamuna Bank to import goods. Although the packaging firm imported goods worth over Tk 4.65 crore under the bond facility, it did not export packaging goods as per the condition of LCs.

As the Packaging Industries Limited imported the duty-free goods under the bond facility, it also dodged duty of over Tk 3.36 crore. The four accused in collusion with each other swindled the total amount.

ACC deputy director Hrithik Saha probed the graft allegation. (Source: UNB)
