Crime Reporter

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) will quiz Moosa Bin Shamser on January 28 over the allegations of laundering money to Swiss Bank, confirmed ACC commissioner Shahabuddin Chuppu.

The corruption watchdog also summoned Mossa today (Wedndesday) in this regard. But he did not appear before it for his illness.

Earlier, in a letter to the commission on Tuesday, Mossa said he cannot appear before the ACC on Wednesday due to health problems, said ACC sources.

After receiving the letter, the commission fixed January 28 for grilling him.

Earlier this month, ACC Director Shibly, who is investigating the matter, had issued a letter, asking the businessman to appear at the ACC on January 13 for interrogation.

During the interrogation in December, 2014, Moosa admitted that he had $7 billion in Swiss Bank accounts that were ‘frozen‘.

In June that year, Moosa in an interview to a magazine said he has properties worth over Tk 53,000 crore.

According to an ACC source, Moosa had told interrogators that he was involved in manpower business in Bangladesh through his company DATCO but had been leading a retired life.

The commission launched its enquiry in 2010 following news reports that Moosa allegedly siphoned off over Tk 51,000 crore abroad.

In 2011, Bangladesh Bank asked all commercial banks to provide the ACC with information and documents they had on Moosa, a man from Faridpur.

The anti-money laundering department of the central bank issued letters the same year to the banks giving a brief introduction about him.
