SC settles NBR petition after Robi’s payment

The Supreme Court (SC) has settled a petition of the National Board of Revenue (NBR) to block all bank accounts maintained by Robi after payment of due taxes. The four-member bench of the Appellate Division headed by Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order on Sunday. Attorney General Mahbube Alam and Deputy Attorney General S M Moniruzzaman represented the state in the court and Barrister Tanjibul Islam moved for Robi. Earlier, Robi agreed to pay its due taxes by Sunday after the Supreme Court cleared way for the National Board of Revenue to block its accounts. NBR froze the bank accounts of Robi Axiata Ltd, the country's second largest mobile operator, on allegations of dodging of Tk 18.72 crore in value-added tax and supplementary duty. Later, Robi went to the High Court against the NBR’s move and the High Court (HC) stayed decision of freezing all bank accounts. On Thursday, the Appellate Division cleared the way to block the mobile operator’s accounts after the NBR challenged the High Court decision.
