Tk 73000 cr being laundered through gold smuggling annually: BAJUS


UNB, Dhaka :

Bangladesh Jewellers’ Association (BAJUS) on Saturday said that around Tk73000 crore is laundered from Bangladesh every year through gold smuggling.

They have sought the government’s tough action and cooperation of intelligence agencies and law enforcers to stop gold smuggling through Bangladesh.

BAJUS leaders said this at a press conference held at the association’s office in Bashundhara city complex in the capital on Saturday.

Enmaul Haque Khan, Chairman of BAJUS standing committee on Anti-Smuggling and Legal Enforcement, gave the speech at the press conference.

Among others, Vice-chairman Bidhan Malakar, members Ikbal Uddin, Swapon Chandra Karmakar, Bikash Ghosh, Babul Rahman, were present at the function.

They claimed that Bangladesh is used as a transit of gold smuggling to neighboring countries by influential syndicates which should be stopped .

Gold worth around Tk200 crore is smuggled daily on average through Bangladesh airways, roads, and waterways, they said.

The jewellers’ association leaders said that they have prepared the report on gold smuggling and money laundering based on law enforcers’ information and newspaper reports regarding gold smuggling.

Replying to a query, BAJUS leaders said 15000 to 20000 bhoris of gold are being imported in Bangladesh through baggage  of travellers which is legal.
