The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today interrogated former foreign minister M Morshed Khan and his son Faisal Morshed Khan in a money-laundering case.
ACC Deputy Director Mir Zainul Abedin Shibly, also the investigation officer of the case, started the interrogation around 10:30am and continued for over two hours, sources at the anti-graft watchdog headquarters said.
After the interrogation, Morshed, also a BNP leader, told reporters that he provided some information to the ACC officials which they had asked for.
ACC Chairman M Bodiuzzaman said they will also grill Nasrin Khan, wife of Morshed, in connection with the case.
Bodiuzzaman however expressed his hope that the ACC will not take a long time to complete the investigation of the money laundering case.
He told the reporters that Morshed concealed information in his income tax documents regarding the money transactions.
On behalf of the ACC, M Moniruzzaman Khan, deputy director of the anti-graft body, sued Morshed, his wife and son for siphoning off the money through their accounts with Standard Chartered Bank, Hong Kong Ltd in 2004.
In December 2013, the anti-graft body filed the case against the three with the city’s Gulshan Police Station on charge of siphoning off money to Hong Kong.
