ACC sues BFIDC director for possessing Tk 7.6 million wealth ‘illegally’


The Anti- Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Thursday filed a case against the director (planning and development) of the Bangladesh Forest Industries Development Corporation (BFIDC) for possessing money from “unknown sources of income and giving false information of wealth in his statement.”

BFIDC director Sazzadul Islam did not provide an appropriate wealth statement about Tk 7.6 million, the anti-corruption watchdog’s deputy director (Public Relations) Muhammad Arif Sadeq told UNB. “So, ACC assistant director Saiful Islam filed the case against him.”

Sazzadul submitted his wealth statement to the ACC on 9 December, 2020, after the anti-corruption watchdog asked him to do so.

After reviewing the statement and records, the ACC found that Sazzadul Islam possessed assets that were worth more than his known sources of income, Sadeq said.
