The director-general (Money Laundering) of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Sunday said activities are being carried out in accordance with the Money Laundering Act to bring back the money smuggled abroad.

Md Mahmudul Hossain Khan was responding to a question from reporters after inaugurating the ACC's Chandpur District Office in the morning, reports Bangla Tribune.

He said: "Mutual cooperation is needed between the two countries to bring back the money laundering. Mutual Legal Assistance Requests (MLARs) are sent to foreign countries through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Home Affairs.

“If the foreign state cooperates with us with accurate information, it is possible to take steps to recover the money. We are trying to do that.”

Among others, Chandpur Deputy Commissioner Kamrul Hasan, Laxmipur Deputy Commissioner Anwar Hossain Akand, Deputy Director of ACC's Chandpur District Office Jalal Uddin Ahmed and Additional Superintendent of Police Sudipta Roy were present.
