The officials allegedly took bribe while recruiting cadet pilots

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is set to interrogate 10 Biman officials, including recently dismissed managing director and chief executive officer AM Mosaddique Ahmed, for irregularities in pilot recruitment.

ACC Assistant Director M Saiful Islam served them show cause notice and asked to appear before the anti-corruption watchdog on Tuesday. 

The other officials were -- Biman ground service supervisors GM Zakir Hossain, Md Mizanur Rahman and AKM Masum Billah, Junior Ground Officer Md Moshiqur Rahman, commercial supervisors Md Rafiqul Alam and Golam Kaiser Ahmed, commercial officers Md Zawed Tarique Khan and Mahfuzul Karim Siddique, and Junior Commercial Officer Marf Mehedi Hasan.

The officials allegedly took bribe while recruiting cadet pilots and were engaged in other forms of corruption.

ACC’s Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee said the commission asked Mosaddique to appear before it on July 30.

Mosaddique’s three-year job contract was scheduled to end on May 30. However, Biman’s board removed him from his post after finding massive irregularities in the pilot recruitment on April 30, he said.

The ACC official also said Mosaddique and the nine others were accused of taking bribes and abusing power in appointing cadet pilots.

Meanwhile, Biman’s current MD and CEO, Farhat Hassan Jamil, was also asked to appear before the commission on July 29.

Biman’s Chief Financial Officer Vineet Sood, marketing and sales department’s Director Ashraful Alam, Director of planning department M Mahbub Jahan Khan and Chief of training Fazal Mahmud were asked to appear before the ACC to give their reasons on July 29.

Biman Director (Admin) Partha Kumar Pandit, Director (Engineering and Material Management) Sazzadur Rahim, Director (Procurement and Logistic Support) Mohammad Mominul Islam and General Manager (Admin) Bushra Islam were also asked to give statements before the commission on July 28.
