Report in tax evasion case against Prince Moosa on Jan 13

DHAKA A court here today set January 13 to submit

probe report in a case filed against businessman Moosa Bin Shamsher for tax

evasion and filing false statement regarding keeping money in Swiss Bank.

Today was fixed for submitting the report, but Dhaka Metropolitan

Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikary had to reset the date as the investigation

agency Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate (CIID) failed to

submit it.

Customs intelligence has found allegations of registering a Range Rover

vehicle brought in the country under tax-free facility, in his name through

submitting false documents and making transaction of illegal money, primarily


Moosa has been blamed for registering the luxury vehicle in his name by

submitting false bill of entry and evading Taka 2.17 crore in tax. He also

did not submit any legal source of income for the money that he has declared

kept in Swiss Bank.

Assistant Revenue Officer of CIID Md Zakir Hossain filed the case

against Moosa with Gulshan Police Station on July 31, 2017 under Money

Laundering Prevention Act.
