Employees involved with drugs to face accountability test, warns DG

Staff Reporter

Employees who have been remiss in their duties in eliminating the drug menace and found guilty of negligence of duty have already lost their jobs, said Md. Jamal Uddin Ahmed, director-general of the Department of Narcotics Control.

He was speaking at a press conference at the head office of the Department of Narcotics yesterday. The real accountability of employees would be ensured, he asserted.

In the meantime, employees would face accountability at the ministry for various reasons. They would be accountable even in the department. If someone neglects his/her work, he/she would not continue in the service of the department, said Jamal Uddin, when asked about complaints against the directorate's circle inspectors.

When he was asked about the list of narcotics traders, the director-general said the list is being continuously updated. It will take some days to finalise it, but the operations to arrest the traders will continue, he added.

Jamal Uddin also said that the list will not be published publicly as it is being prepared for operational purposes.

The director-general said a home minister-level meeting was held recently between Myanmar and Bangladesh. At this meeting, a request was made to the home minister to address the 49 Yaba factories in Myanmar.

Earlier, on 28 January, the information ministry launched an information campaign against drugs. The operation is being conducted to protect the next generation from the menace of drugs.

Again, the government has launched an anti-narcotics 'Information Expedition' from March 1 to build public awareness to prevent the spread of drugs. As part of this, yesterday (Thursday), at 8:40 pm, the slogan 'Love life, stay away from drug' was simultaneously promoted on all TV channels and radios of the country.

After the press conference, a press release issued was by the Directorate of Narcotics Control, said Syed Tawfiq Uddin Ahmed, deputy inspector-general (DIG) and director (operations and intelligence) notified.
