BB heist: Govt determined to take steps against all, says Muhith

Finance Minister AMA Muhith today said that the government is determined to bring all those involved in stealing money from the central bank’s account with Federal Reserve Bank of New York – be it foreigners and local.

Replying to lawmakers’ queries in the parliament, Muhith said a case filed in connection with the reserve heist is under investigation.

In reply to another query, the minister informed the House about the government’s various measures to stop recurrence of such incidents in future.

The measures include total isolation of Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) system, keep functioning the Digital Signature Smart Card of SWIFT only during transaction, change of secret password of all operators and setting up of specialised firewalls to ensure e-mail services.

Muhith also said the government will take necessary measures for implementation after receiving final report of the probe body led by former Bangladesh Bank governor Dr Mohammed Farashuddin.
