According to the ACC, the Grameen Telecom board decided to open a bank account to share profits with employees in a meeting held on May 9, 2022. Its chairman Dr. Yunus and managing director Nazmul Islam were present in the meeting. As per the decision, they opened a bank account at the Gulshan branch of Dhaka Bank on May 8.

The ACC said an agreement was signed between the workers union and Grameen Telecom on April 27 that year to distribute dividends to the employees.

It is written in the agreement that the account was opened on May 8, which is impossible in reality. This was done through fake documents.

The ACC said that as per the agreement and the decision of the 108th board meeting of Grameen Telecom, an amount of 4.37 billion taka was transferred from the Mirpur branch of United Commercial Bank (UCB) to the Gulshan branch of Dhaka Bank on May 10, 2022. The dividend was embezzled without distributing it to the employees.

However, Dr Yunus’ lawyer Abdullah Al Mamun told Pratham Alo that after the employees went to court demanding dividends, Grameen Telecom had reached a settlement with them.

According to the conversation, the employees demanded an advance amount of 250 million taka for the expenses of the lawyers. This fund was for this purpose and the employees also gave written consent in this regard.
