Bangladesh Bank will investigate the financial transactions and other e-commerce activities of e-commerce platform Evaly.
Head of the Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) Abu Hena Razee Hasan informed reporters about BB’s move. He said the bank accounts of Evaly and its top executives were frozen after seeing media reports about the e-commerce firm’s “illegal activities”.
The BFIU, an arm of the Bangladesh Bank, directed all commercial banks and financial institutions through a common letter on August 27 to freeze all bank accounts operated by top executives of Evaly, reports UNB.
A copy the BFIU letter, signed by its deputy director Fuara Khatun, obtained by UNB, shows that it has asked all banks and financial institutions to freeze accounts of Evaly’s Chairman Shamima Nasrin, and Managing Director (MD) Md Rasel.
