Report in tax evasion case against Prince Moosa on Nov 12


A Dhaka court on Sunday set November 12 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, reports BSS.

Sunday was fixed for submitting the report but the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikary 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 true.

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.
