National Board of Revenue on Wednesday recommended to the Anti-Corruption Commission to file two cases against controversial businessman Moosa Bin Shamsher.
‘NBR has recommended ACC to file a case against Moosa for registering a Range Rover sport utility vehicle, brought in the country under carnet facility, through using fake documents,’ a customs intelligence release said.
The car was registered from Bhola BRTA after collecting from Chittagong customs by paying tax of only Tk 17 lakh. But the customs intelligence in their investigation, found the owner was supposed to pay tax of Tk 2.16 crore.
The bill of entry and other documents submitted to BRTA while registering the SUV were also found to be forged.
As the type of crimes came under ACC jurisdiction, NBR sent the recommendation to the anti-graft body. The NBR also recommended ACC to file another case against the former arms trader under anti-money laundering act.
Customs intelligence seized the black Range Rover SUV on March 21 from capital’s Dhanmondi area.
