Swindling Prime Bank: ACC okays charge sheet against 30

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today approved the charge sheet against 30 people including 11 bankers for swindling Tk 92.65 crore from Prime Bank.
According to the charge sheet, 11 suspended and retired Prime Bank officers in collaboration with 19 traders swindled the depositors' money by showing fake loan recipients, a top ACC official said.   
The accused -- including the bank’s suspended vice-president HM Zakir Hossain -- swindled the money from Prime Bank's Islami Banking Branch of Dilkusha in the capital between 2006 and 2012, he added.
Quoting the case statement, the ACC official said the 11 bank officials arranged loan sanctions to fake loan recipients and drew the amount using bank accounts of the 19 traders.
The bank authorities lodged the money laundering case with Motijheel Police Station accusing only Kamrul Ahmed Ferdous, former executive officer of the bank's Islami Banking branch in Dilkusha on March 29, 2012.
Later, the case was handed over to the ACC for investigation. ACC Assistant Director SM Rashedur Reza during the investigation has found involvement of the rest of the accused.
