The High Court on Sunday asked the Anti-Corruption Commission and National Board of Revenue to submit a report after investigating the allegations of money laundering and tax evasion against the pharmaceutical company ‘Biopharma Limited’ within two months.
The HC bench of Justice Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Khizir Hayat passed the order after hearing a writ petition on vernacular daily Kalbela report titled ‘Biopharma’s money laundered from countries to countries.'
Moreover, the court ordered to dispose of the petition regarding the dismissal of writ petitioners Dr Morshed Uddin Akand and Dr Jahangir Alam.
Besides, a rule has been issued asking why the failure and inaction of defendants to take legal action against those involved with this corruption and money laundering should not be declared illegal and why legal action should not be ordered against those involved in this corruption and money laundering.
The defendants were asked to respond to this rule within four weeks. Abdus Salam Mamun stood for the writ petition while Md Saifuddin Khaled stood for the state.
Earlier on April 18, the report titled ‘Bio Pharma’s money laundered countries to countries’ was published.
