The Biman officials were accused of engaging in corruption while recruiting cadet pilots

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a case against three directors and a general manager of Biman Bangladesh Airlines on graft allegations.

The officials are Biman Managing Director AM Mosaddique Ahmed, Director (Admin) Partha Kumar Pandit, Director (Flight Operations) Captain Farhad Hassan Jamil, and General Manager Fakhrul Hossain Chowdhury.

ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune on Monday. 

He said: "ACC Assistant Director M Saiful Islam filed the case against the Biman officials at the anti-graft watchdog’s Integrated District Office 1 in Dhaka.

"They have been accused for their engagement in corrupt activities and abuse of power during the recruitment of cadet pilots in 2018."

According to case details, the accused Biman officials did not follow the age and qualification requirements constituted by the institution, and instead issued a circular with their own clauses.

At least 32 individuals, including Mosaddique Ahmed's nephew, took advantage of the altered job circular.

ACC officials said the four accused also bypassed institutional regulations in the primary selection procedure of cadet pilots and gave more marks to their favored candidates. 

The offences Biman officials allegedly committed are punishable by law under section 109 of Prevention of Corruption Act 1947, ACC authorities added.
