Destiny-2000 Limited Managing Director Rafiqul Amin and Chairman Mohammad Hossain on Thursday confessed to embezzling money before a magistrates court in Dhaka.
Magistrate’s Court recorded their confessional statements in two separate money-laundering cases from noon to late afternoon. One of the Anti Corruption Committee officer confirmed this on Thursday. The duo was sent to jail after their confessional statement that they had swindled large amounts of money from their tree plantation project through corruption and fraud in collaboration with other officials.
They were placed on an 18-day remand on Oct 17 in connection with two money laundering cases.
The High Court on Oct 18 granted bail to the Destiny Group President M Harun-Ar-Rashid for two months in the two cases, on condition that he would not communicate with the Group.
