Staff Reporter:

Md Matiur Rahman, President of the National Board of Revenue’s (NBR) Customs, Excise and VAT Appellate Tribunal, has been removed from his post over allegations of amassing illegal wealth and money laundering.  He has been attached to the Internal Resources Division (IRD) of the Finance Ministry.

A notification signed by the Finance Ministry’s Deputy Secretary Mokima Begum was issued in this regard on Sunday.  It said the decision will be effective immediately.

The allegations of amassing illegal wealth by the NBR official came to light after a video of Matiur’s son, Mushfiqur Rahman Ifat, who bought a goat at a price of Tk 15 lakh, went viral before Eid-ul-Azha.

In this connection, Matiur Rahman told the media that Ifat is not his son.

Nizam Uddin Hazari, the lawmaker for the Feni-2 constituency, however, confirmed to media that his cousin Shammi Akhtar is the second wife of Matiur and Ifat is his son.
