Money laundering: AB Bank ex-chairman M Wahidul Haque at ACC

Asianbarta : The Anti-Corruption Commission started interrogating former chairman of AB Bank M Wahidul Haque this morning over “laundering Tk 165 crore” to UAE.

The interrogation started at ACC headquarters around 9:00am, commission’s Press Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told The Daily Star.

Wahidul Haque, along with AB Bank’s vice chairman and a director, resigned from the bank’s board of directors on December 21 amid allegations of money laundering by the bank.

The development comes at a time when the bank faces criticism over its alleged laundering of around Tk 165 crore ($20 million) to the United Arab Emirates through two shady organisations in the name of investment.
