Investigators seek info on Moosa's war crimes
The investigation agency of the International Crimes Tribunal has urged people to give it information on controversial business tycoon Moosa Bin Shamsher’s involvement in crimes against humanity during the 1971 Liberation War. Coordinator of the agency Sanaul Haque made the statement during a media briefing at its Dhanmondi office on Wednesday morning. “We are still investigating the matter whether Moosa was involved in crimes against humanity. If anyone has any information against him, please inform the tribunal,” Sanaul said. He also told reporters that the probe report against nine Mymensingh war crimes accused had been finalised. Moosa Bin Shamsher is the owner of Datco, a manpower exporting company, and had long been involved in mediating defence purchases between different countries. According to local journalists and freedom fighters in Faridpur, Moosa had allegedly developed a close relationship with the Pakistan Army during the war. On March 21, Customs Intelligence seized a Range Rover belonging to Moosa for tax evasion. The officials discovered that the car had been registered under a false name and description to avoid paying taxes. Last year, the Anti-Corruption Commission filed a case against him for giving false information of his wealth. Earlier, Moosa claimed that he had $12 billion kept frozen at a Swiss Bank account. The ACC initiated inquiries in 2010 and 2011 following newspaper reports on his properties and lavish lifestyle. He claimed that the central banks of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Syria and Pakistan had deposited the amounts in his Swiss Bank account with regard to defence-related purchases.
