A Dhaka court today (11 July) has ordered the seizure of assets belonging to Motiur Rahman, an official of the National Board of Revenue (NBR), amid corruption allegations.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Mohammad As-Sams Jaglul Hossain ordered the confiscation of 116 bank accounts, four flats, and 23 acres of property belonging to Rahman’s family. 

The order was issued following a petition by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

The ACC had previously secured an order on 4 July to confiscate over 524 kathas of land and four flats owned by Matiur, who was recently removed from his NBR position.

The ACC petition stated that Matiur and his family were attempting to transfer their assets, which would hinder the investigation and legal proceedings. 

The ACC argued that seizing the assets was essential to ensure a thorough investigation and justice.

A three-member ACC committee is investigating Rahman's assets. 

He was transferred to the Internal Resources Division of the Ministry of Finance on 23 June.

The case gained attention after Matiur’s son, Ifat, bought a goat for Tk15 lakh, instigating scrutiny of Matiur’s financial belongings.
