A former banker with the defunct Bank of Credit and Commerce Hong Kong, who had been wanted by the Independent Commission Against Corruption for 12 years, appeared in court yesterday charged with publishing a false statement. Dildar Husain Rizvi, 64, appeared in Eastern Court a day after returning voluntarily from Canada, where he was arrested on January 26 at the request of the Hong Kong government. He did not enter a plea. Magistrate Colin MacKintosh released him on cash bail of HK$745,000 until December 1. The charge alleges that on May 2, 1988, Rizvi, an officer of a body corporate, published or concurred in the publishing of the audited financial statements of the bank for the period ending December 31, 1987, which to his knowledge were misleading, false or deceptive. It is alleged that the statements did not disclose the financial loss sustained to the bank's share portfolio, with intent to deceive members or creditors of the bank. Rizvi had left Hong Kong before the ICAC began its investigation following a complaint from the Official Receiver. A warrant for his arrest was issued by a magistrate in Hong Kong on December 6, 1994. Arrested in Vancouver on January 26 by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, he agreed to waive extradition proceedings. BCCHK was placed into provisional liquidation in July 1991, with the Official Receiver being appointed as the provisional liquidator.
