Special Correspondent: Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith said necessary steps will be taken over the reported gold scam in the Bangladesh Bank’s vault after he returned home from abroad.
The Minister told to a private TV channel in New York of USA on Wednesday, according to sources concerned.
Muhith said, “There is no scope to take the BB’s gold scam lightly. BB authority is responsible for this. They should be alert and verified the gold before reserving it in the vault. BB authority cannot avoid the accountability.”
“I will review the matter once I return home. Steps would be taken after discussion with officials concerned. I believe BB authority must take actions if someone is found guilty of the central bank involved in the scam,” he added.
The Finance Ministry left Dhaka for USA to attend an international workshop titled “Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-Operation” on July 16. He is expected to return home on July 22.
