Five Chinese held in Bangladesh accused of running illegal telecom operation
(12-23 14:58)

Bangladesh security forces have arrested five Chinese and 32 Taiwanese, mostly in their 20s, after raiding an illegal internet telephone operation they were allegedly running in an upscale Dhaka neighborhood, an official said.
Local media reports said two Bangladeshis were also arrested.
The Chinese and Taiwanese had masqueraded as apparel traders.
The Rapid Action Battalion raided the apartment block late Sunday and arrested the foreigners over the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) operation offering cheap international calls, RAB spokesman Habibur Rahman said.
The official said those arrested include seven women. “Thirty-two of them are Taiwanese and the rest Chinese.''
“We've examined their papers. They don't have any work permit to operate in Bangladesh,'' he added.
They were paraded before local media along with seized telecom equipment after the raid in capital's Uttara district.—AFP/The Standard
