The High Court (HC) on Monday (May 23) ordered authorities concerned to identify people and companies behind e-commerce scams across the country.
A High Court division bench of Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah and Justice Khizir Hayat issued the order after holding a hearing on three separate writ petitions filed in this regard.
Barrister Humayun Kabir Pallab confirmed the matter.
He said that the court asked the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to determine the amount of money laundered abroad from the country's e-commerce companies.
