Secretary General demands judicial inquiry into Bangladesh Bank blaze incident

Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 24th March, 2017 expressing deep concern as Foreign Exchange Policy Department (FEPD) of Bangladesh Bank came under mysterious blaze on 23rd Match that caused huge financial losses.

“The countrymen think that the blaze incident in the Bangladesh Bank’s Foreign Exchange Policy Department (FEPD) should be probed through a judicial commission as this is an effort to destroy the documents intentionally to conceal the incident of reserve fund scam.

Though a year has been passed since the incident of reserve fund scam reveals, Bangladesh did not get the money back and the masterminds behind the incident are not identified as well. They are still working in the central bank. The media sources revealed that, some important documents and records have been burnt into ashes due to this blaze. The people are deeply worried with this incident.

It should be mentioned here that, the report of the investigation committee is not revealed yet. The countrymen are in great suspicion, whether this report would be revealed at all or not. So this report must be made public.

In this backdrop, I am urging the concerned authorities to form a judicial committee to investigate into the mysterious fire incident at the Foreign Exchange Policy Department (FEPD) of Bangladesh Bank.
