Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi has expressed his hope that deceived clients of Destiny Group and Jubok, which collapsed amid widespread fraud, would get 50 to 60 per cent money back by selling the assets of the two companies.
“To my consideration, the cheated clients can get up to 50 to 60 per cent of the money refund. But the issue remains pending with the court for settlement”, he said while addressing a workshop organised by the Bangladesh Competition Commission (BCC) for Economic Reporters Forum (ERF) members at the BCC office in the city on Sunday.
The BCC organised the event to discuss the issues for creating a fair competition environment in the market through the implementation of the Competition Law, reports UNB
