Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Iqbal Mahmood has admitted the commission lacks capability to some extent, for which it is not possible to fully expose all the corruption allegations.

"It has not been possible to ensure punishment in cent percent cases," he said on Thursday, when Executive Director of Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) Dr Iftekharuzzaman met him to sign a memorandum of understanding with the ACC anew.

The ACC chief said punishment is being meted to perpetrators in 70% cases which is a positive change and various trainings are being imparted to ACC officials to enhance their capability

Mentioning that they are legally bound to take cognizance of all kinds of cases -- big or small-- Mahmood underscored the need for amending the existing law to incorporate the plea, bargaining system so that small cases can be disposed of in a different manner. 

"This might help dispose of the pending cases quickly," the ACC chief added.

He said the commission wants cooperation from all public and private organizations, not only TIB, in rooting out corruption from the country.

The ACC chairman also emphasized innovative ideas to build the next generation imbued with moral values.

 "Various creative programs are devised and implemented at primary and secondary levels. This will be the biggest investment."

He assured that if any program is taken to change the mindset of students, the ACC will cooperate to this end.

TIB Executive Director Iftekharuzzaman said they want to work together with the ACC to make the national anti-graft body stronger so that it can deal with graft effectively.
