‘Graft allegation’

ACC summons bdnews24.com editor on Nov 11

Khalidi rejects claims
Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has summoned Toufique Imrose Khalidi, editor-in-chief of news portal bdnews24.com, to appear before the commission on November 11 to inquire about his ‘wealth inconsistencies’, says a report of bdnews24.com. The ACC sent a letter in this regard to the bdnews24.com office in Dhaka yesterday.

The ACC letter said Khalidi’s statement was required in connection with the allegations of “transferring a huge amount of money” by “hiding location” by himself and bdnews24.com, and “earning wealth inconsistent with his known income through illegal activities”, according to

the report. Following the ACC  summon, Khalidi in a statement said, “I was never involved in any irregularity, corruption or illegal activity. I don’t possess any wealth that is inconsistent with my disclosed income.”  

Khalidi said he has been filing tax returns regularly every year with transparency since he returned to Bangladesh in 2005.

 “I have now a little more than 8 percent ownership of the company after selling some shares to an asset management company. All the related documents are with the relevant government agency,” Khalidi said.
