Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that government is investigating the money-laundering by the members of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s family.
“Investigation is going on. We will take proper actions if they found guilty and bring the money back,” she said.
The Prime Minister said this while replying to a supplementary question of Jatiya Party MP Fakhrul Imam during PM’s question-answer session in parliament.
Referring to a report of Global Intelligence Network, Imam presented a list of the BNP leaders’ assets abroad.
However, it couldn’t be verified if the report was true.
She said the government is aware about the GIN report that published on the siphoning off money by the family members of the BNP chief to various countries of the world.
“The investigation is going on there. We’ll take appropriate measures after scrutinizing the facts through the investigation,” she said.
The prime minister however said for the sake of the investigation she will not provide further information in this regard.
The Prime Minister said the government already brought back some of the money siphoned off by Khaleda’s youngest son Arafat Rahman Koko.
“This was the first time in Bangladesh history that siphoned off money was brought back,” she said.
