In order to prosecute them for money laundering, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has sought information on a number of garment factory owners.

Recently, the commission sent letters to the National Board of Revenue (NBR) and several banks requesting specific information on the owners of the plant.

According to sources, under the guise of import and export, about Tk 65,000 crore is laundered annually from the country.

In the reports of national and international research institutes, this information was released.

Taking this into account, the ACC wrote to the NBR and the bank requesting information from the clothing factory owners about suspects seeking assistance in investigating various irregularities, corruption and money laundering, UNB notes.

A three-member investigative team is investigating the claims, headed by ACC Deputy Director Billa. Assistant Director Ataul Kabir and Bazlur Rashid are the other representatives.
