Bangladesh Football Federation vice-president Mohiuddin Ahmed Mohi on Wednesday was asked by the BFF ethics committee to clear his position about allegations of his involvement in gold embezzlement from Bangladesh Samabaya Bank Limited.

The Anti-Corruption Commission on February 17 filed a case against Bangladesh Samabaya Bank Ltd chairman Mohi and eight others officials, alleging embezzlement of gold worth approximately Tk 11 crore and 40 lakh from depositors lockers.

Following reports on this issue on local media, the Asian Football Confederation on Tuesday sent a letter to BFF, telling them to clarify Mohi’s stance on the allegation.

‘AFC sent us a letter asking about Mohi’s stance. I have no right to comment about it before the media. We handed the responsibility to the BFF ethics committee. They will look into the matter,’ said BFF president Kazi Salahuddin on Wednesday.

Mohi, who visited the BFF office on Wednesday, told the media that he will answer the BFF ethics committee soon. 

‘I was informed about the AFC’s complaint. I saw it today [Wednesday]…Of course, I will give my reply [to ethics committee],’ said Mohi.
