Dhaka – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), central intelligence and security service of the United States of America (USA), is keen to work with the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in order to preventing militancy funding and money laundering between two countries.ACC chairman Iqbal Mahmood disclosed this to the media after holding a meeting at the ACC office with the FBI legal assistant David Eden and some others high officials of the ACC.
However, David Eden did not talk with the media.
But, ACC chairman told media that the FBI is interested to provide support to the ACC to help it prevent and fight corruption in Bangladesh.
The FBI wanted to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the ACC to jointly foster international cooperation in preventing money laundering and militancy funding, the ACC chairman said.
However, the ACC chairman said that the date of signing MoU is yet to finalise. A team of FBI will come in Bangladesh in July this year to take final decision.
He informed the media that the ACC has also interested to work with the FBI to curb the militancy funding and money laundering.
Relating the matter, FBI has already signed a MoU with Indonesia in the meantime.
Earlier in February, responding a letter of the ACC, the FBI of the US Department of Justice sent an official letter to ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahmood through email, saying it supports the Commission’s efforts to ensure that Bangladesh is a country free from corruption and it is looking forward to working with the ACC to ensure wellbeing of an important partner country.
The ACC sent the letter to the FBI requesting it to pave the way for signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly foster international cooperation in preventing and fighting corruption through effective and efficient mutual assistance. The Commission also sent a raft of the MoU with the letter to the FBI.
According to official sources, the ACC has sought FBI assistance to fight graft in the country in line with the Article 48 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, which encourages state parties to enter into a bilateral or multilateral agreement on direct cooperation between their law enforcement agencies. – Staff Reporter
