The assertion of the BNP that the 2016 cyber heist of the Bangladesh Bank money was a “state-sponsored” act, has ultimately proved to be true, a senior leader of the party said on Saturday.

BNP senior joint general secretary Ruhul Kabir Rizvi made the contention, referring to America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigation of late that called the incident of hacking the central bank’s account at the New York Federal Reserve as “state-sponsored”.

“The FBI has confirmed that the heist of $81 million from the Bangladesh central bank’s account at the New York Federal Reserve was a state-sponsored act… Thus the BNP’s allegation has come out as true”, Rizvi said in a news conference at the party’s Naya Paltan central office.

He mentioned that the Awami League government has not even regretted the heist.

“They (AL leaders) haven’t implemented any developmental activities except robbing the public money,” said the leader of the principal opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP).

In reference to rumour that the government is unable to take action against the key person behind the heist, Rizvi said findings of the FBI clarifies the reason why the finance minister shelved the probe report on the world’s biggest cyber heist so far.

“The people’s money vanishes because a superstate is active within Bangladesh. The countrymen know the members of the superstate,” he said.

Rizvi added, “The government will lose power if it irritates them.”

He pointed out that, “FBI said it is close to revealing the names of perpetrators involved in the biggest ever reserve heist.”

“The country will not come out of its bad fortune as long as the Awami League remains in power. Actually, the Awami League is the pseudonym for corruption,” Rizvi said.

BNP leader Khairul Kabir, Ruhul Kuddus Talukder, Abdus Salam Azad and Aminul Islam also were present in the news conference.
