The watchdog prepared 11 recommendations to combat the issue

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) identified a total of 19 areas of aviation corruption in Bangladesh.

They identified eight and 11 areas of corruption in the national flag carrier, Biman Bangladesh Airlines, and the civil aviation sector, respectively.

The watchdog also prepared 11 recommendations to combat the issue.

ACC commissioner Mozammel Haque Khan handed over a report on corruption in the Biman and the civil aviation sector to State Minister for Civil Aviation, Mahbub Ali, at his office in Dhaka on Sunday.

The report said that the 11 areas of corruption include maintenance, repair, purchase, property management, construction, development work, appointment of consultants, recruitment of staff, promotions and transfers, lease of airport spaces, and stalls and billboard fare.

Aside from this, eight types of corruption including purchase, lease of aircraft, ticket sales, export and import of cargo, catering, recruitment and transfer, hit the national flag carrier.

Speaking to the press, the minister warned of tough action against corruption.

“Those who are engaging in corruption and neglecting their duties will face stern consequences. None will be spared,” Mahbub Ali said.
