The government on Tuesday appointed SM Moniruzzaman as a deputy governor of Bangladesh Bank.
According to a notification by Bank and Financial Institutions Division on the day, Moniruzzaman has been appointed as the deputy governor for the next three years on contractual basis.
The notification was issued by BFID after it had received consent from the
prime minister to the appointment.
Moniruzzaman has been an executive director of the central bank.
In June, a search committee appointed by the BIFD proposed names of three short-listed candidates including Moniruzzaman. But the BFID rejected all the short-listed candidates due to allegations of corruption against them.
After the government took fresh recruitment move, the search committee again recommended Moniruzzaman along with two other officials for appointment.
Moniruzzaman will now join with two other deputy governors — Abu Hena Mohd Razee Hassan and SK Sur Chowdhury.
The government has been looking for eligible persons to fill the vacuum in upper level of the central bank since sacking its two deputy governors Abul Kashem and Nazneen Sultana in March following detection of heist of $101 million from BB account with the New York Federal Reserve.
Former governor Atiur Rahman was also forced to step down due to unprecedented reserve heist.
