ACC chair: Drive against corruption to continue

Update : 30 Mar 2014, 08:42 PM

Anti-Corruption Commission Chairman M Bodiuzzman yesterday urged people not to doubt the sincerity of the commission regarding the ongoing inquiries against some ruling party leaders.

“Please wait and see, do not be disappointed, have faith…We will take legal action against everyone involved with corruption,” he said while addressing a human chain marking the corruption prevention week in front of the National Press Club.

Alleging that the previous commission had not taken action against ruling party men, he said the present commission had taken many initiatives in this regard.

“This would be an ongoing process and we will not spare anyone,” he added.

ACC Commissioner M Shahabuddin said the commission would take legal measures against every suspect, regardless of their position in the present or the past government.

Following media reports on the phenomenal rise of wealth and assets of seven lawmakers, the ACC on January 22 began inquiries into the wealth rise of three former ministers, three lawmakers from the ruling Awami League and a former lawmaker from the Jatiya Party.

The accused politicians are former health minister AFM Ruhal Haq, former state minister for housing and public works Abdul Mannan Khan, former state minister for water resources Mahbubur Rahman, and lawmakers Abdur Rahman Badi of Cox’s Bazar 4,  Aslamul Haque of Dhaka 14,  Enamul Haque of Rajshahi 4 and former lawmaker from Satkhira 2 Abdul Jabbar.
