The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has sued 14 people, including the registrar-in-charge of Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC), for their alleged involvement in providing fake medical licenses to 12 frauds posing as doctors.

“ACC Deputy Director Salina Akhtar Moni filed the case with its integrated district office Dhaka-1 on Wednesday,” ACC Director (media) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee said while confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune. 

The two BMDC officials are: Registrar Jahidul Haque Bosunia and its administrative official Mohammad Borhan Uddin.

Practicing with fake certificates

According to the case, 12 students took part in BMDC’s registration examinations by submitting fake MBBS certificates of China’s Taishan Medical University.

After taking the BMDC’s registration, they also started practicing as physicians at different private hospitals across the country.

However, an ACC inquiry team, led by ACC Deputy Director Selina Akhtar Moni, found that these 12  students had acquired medical licenses with fake certificates.

The case statement also mentioned that the twelve accused did not study at Taishan Medical University in China.

However, they got approval for practice from Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC), according to the inquiry team.

In 2018, an ACC team first gained information regarding the fake MBBS certificates scam. 

Later, the ACC sent copies of the 12 certificates to authorities at Taishan Medical University through Foreign Ministry for clarification. 

On January 21, 2019, the Chinese medical university authorities confirmed that the certificates in question were fake. 

The university also demanded punishment of the students, reads the case statement.

The case statement also said that an investigation by the Foreign Ministry also found that the 12 students only visited China on a tourist visa, not for educational purposes. 

ACC officials said the two BMDC officials were well aware of the forge certificates and scam.

Dhaka Tribune could not reach BMDC Registrar Jahidul Haque Bosunia and its administrative official Mohammad Borhan Uddin for comments despite repeated attempts.
