MILITANT FINANCING

‘Dubious transactions under scanner’

Special Correspondent

Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu yesterday said that Bangladesh Bank is working with law enforcement and intelligence agencies to keep surveillance of militant financing in the country and its origin. “The agencies are monitoring earnings coming from foreign countries to trace the source of militant financing,” he told reporters after holding a meeting of the committee on ‘Militancy Prevention and Resistance’ at the home ministry yesterday.

“The central bank and the intelligence agencies are also scanning the remittance inflow to trace whether it is being used for militant funding,” said Amu, chairman of the cabinet committee on law and order. The industries minister also said that there are three types of people behind militant financing: the militants themselves, people who supports militants, and those

who are sympathetic to the cause of militants.  Amu told reporters that a nine-member committee has been formed to monitor transactions that raise red flags.

The industries ministry also divulged that the authorities concerned were keeping vigil at the transactions of mobile banking and courier services.

Among others, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, State Minister For Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam, Secretary to Public Security Division of the Home Ministry Mostafa Kamal Uddin and  Inspector General of Police Javed Patwari, were present at the meet.
