Bangladesh Bank heist: Two CID officials to visit Manila
Two officials of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) are flying to Philippines as part of an investigation into last year's Bangladesh Bank reserve cyber heist. Special Superintendent of Police Molla Nazrul Islam and Additional Superintendent of Police Raihan Uddin Khan, investigating the case, are scheduled to leave on Tuesday. CID’s Additional Inspector General Sheikh Hemayet Hossain said this visit was part of their investigation proceedings. They visited Philippine several times for the ongoing investigation. CID sources said Nazrul and Raihan would hold several meetings with Philippine Central Bank Department of Justice, Anti-Money Laundering Council, Presidential Commission on Good Governance and Solicitor General Office during their four-day visit. A senior CID officer, choosing to remain anonymous, told the Dhaka Tribune that the officials would give Philippines names of its citizens who have been found involved with the heist. On February 4 last year, hackers attempted to steal $101m from Bangladesh Bank’s account with Federal Reserve Bank in New York but the theft attempt was noticed two days later. Of the amount, transfer of $20m was immediately stopped by a Sri Lankan bank but the hackers managed to transfer $81m to Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) in the Philippines. Bangladesh also retrieved $68,000 that was left behind by the hackers at RCBC. The CID investigators have so far found the involvement of at least seven officials of the central bank. Another investigating source says that at least 23 foreigners of six countries took part in the heist.
