ACC moves to seize Destiny Group’s assets

The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) has taken a move to seize all the movable and immovable property of controversial multilevel marketing company Destiny Group.

According to a Dhaka court order, the investigation team of the anti-graft body has already sent the copies of the court order to 48 government relevant offices of 23 districts, including the offices of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, Chittagong Metropolitan Police, Rajshahi Metropolitan Police and Bangladesh Road and Transport Authority (BRTA), to seize the Destiny property.

ACC sources said the Destiny Group has a huge amount of movable and immovable property, including land, cars, buildings and flats. The ACC sent the copies of the court order to the deputy commissioners (DCs) and other authorities concerned so that the company cannot sell or hand over its property.

In November last year, a Dhaka court ordered confiscation of all the movable and immovable property of Destiny 2000 Limited, its chairman, managing director and his wife in two money-laundering cases.

On October 2, 2012, the same court had ordered freezing of 533 bank accounts of Destiny officials following an ACC petition.

The graft watchdog on July 31, 2012 filed two money-laundering cases against Destiny 2000 Limited chairman Lt General (retd) M Harunur Rashid and managing director Rafiqul Amin and 20 others on charge of misappropriating its clients’ money of around Tk 35 billion. UNB
