FBI keen to assist Bangladesh deal with terror financing

US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is very much keen to provide assistance to Bangladesh to deal with terror financing and money-laundering.

 

The visiting FBI representative David J. Eaton expressed the interest when he called on Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) chairman Iqbal Mahmud at the ACC head office in the city.

 

During the meeting, Mahmud said the ACC has already finalised to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with different countries including Bhutan, India and Indonesia for checking on terror financing and money-laundering.

 

He said the ACC is interested to sign a MoU with the FBI due to the current global perspective.

 

Terming drugs, human trafficking, money-laundering and terror financing are tied with a same sting, Mahmud sought FBI assistance in combating money-laundering.

 

The FBI representative also offered his organisation's help to provide basic training to the ACC personnel on preventing terror financing and money-laundering.
