Senior bankers have urged their colleagues to make their best efforts to prevent money laundering and other malpractices in banks for the sake of uprooting various social crimes including terrorism and militancy. Terming the border-belt districts like Rajshahi and Chapainawabganj as a crime-prone zone, they said bankers must remain sincere and alert so that money laundering and terror financing can be eradicated. They were addressing the inaugural session of a four-day training course titled "Prevention of Money Laundering and Malpractices in Banks" for some field level bankers of Rajshahi Krishi Unnayan Bank (RAKUB) at its training institute on Monday, reports BSS.
The main focus of the course was to disseminate updated knowledge and strategies to prevent malpractices associated with money laundering. Thirty bankers from senior officers to assistant general managers joined the course. RAKUB Managing Director Sanaul Haque addressed the session as chief guest with principal of the training institute Ataur Rahman in the chair. Faculty Members Md Arifuzzaman and SM Ahsanullah also spoke.
