Muhith hopeful of recovering stolen BB money
Finance Minister AMA Muhith on Wednesday reiterated his optimism about getting back the Bangladesh Bank's (BB) stolen money from the Philippines despite the delay in the procedure.

"The activities are going on to bring back BB's stolen money. Though it will take time, we will get back the total money," he told journalists after a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Government Purchase (CCGP) at cabinet division.

The minister said the investigation report on the BB's reserve heist is not being made public for now.

Hackers stole the BB’s US $101 million account with New York's Federal Reserve Bank. The thieves were able to move about $81 million to accounts in the Philippines and another $20 million to a bank in Sri Lanka, according to BSS.
