Staff Reporter :
The Anti-Corruption Commission has summoned former AB Bank Chairman M Wahidul Haque and seven other past and present officials for grilling over a money laundering scam involving $43.54 million (Tk 340 crore).
They will be quizzed at the ACC headquarters in Dhaka today, said ACC's Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.
The bank officials were first called to the ACC on December 13 and 14, a week before three directors of AB Bank including Chairman Wahidul Haque resigned from their posts when the bank's board was reshuffled on December 21. But they did not respond to the ACC.
ACC served notices to them again on Wednesday asking them to face ACC's questioning over the money laundering case, said Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.  
On December 9, the ACC first summoned the then AB Bank Chairman former Managing Director (MD) M Fazlur Rahman, another ex-MD Shamim Ahmed Chowdhury and head of financial institution and treasury Abu Hena Mostafa Kamal to face an ACC team.
But the AB Bank officials did not face the ACC team seeking time by sending an application.
The ACC has brought against them charges of siphoning off $43.54 million in the name of four offshore companies in Singapore.
