The Bangladesh government is negotiating with Canada to bring money launderers and defaulters back to the country. The last formal meeting with a high-level delegation led by the Director General of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) was held at the Bangladesh High Commission in Canada on September 7. A productive discussion was held in that meeting on how to quickly send the accused money launderers back to the country. This was stated in the statement published yesterday on Sunday on the Facebook page of Bangladesh High Commission in Canada.
According to the Bangladesh High Commission in Canada, the High Commission is working closely with the relevant organizations in Canada to send back the identified money launderers and those who are accused in this regard and against whom the case is pending in the court. High Commissioner Khalilur Rahman has announced that Bangladesh High Commission will not provide any kind of consular services to those living in Canada by smuggling money illegally.
The High Commission made that statement mainly about the writing of a journalist stationed in that country on social media involving the High Commission and the High Commissioner. The High Commission alleged that a person who had commented on the journalist’s social media post had lobbied for a debtor.
According to the statement, there was a lobby to the High Commission and the High Commissioner to give a sticker of ‘No Visa Required’ (no visa required to come to Bangladesh) in the Canadian passport of the Bangladeshi who defaulted on a loan of 102 crores in Bangladesh. But due to non-response to that petition, the concerned persons are complaining against the High Commission and the High Commissioner through social media.
