Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said the ongoing drive against casinos and all sorts of corruption, including bribery, will continue until the elimination of crimes from all spheres of the state and society.

“The drive by law enforcement and other agencies concerned will continue until the elimination of crimes from all spheres of the state and society,” she said replying to a starred question from Jatiya Party (JP) MP Rowshan Ara Mannan during her question-answer session in Parliament.

The Prime Minister said laws are being strictly enforced against all the criminals irrespective of their political identity and views.

In reply to another question from JP MP Mujibul Haque, she said the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has been working to bring the corrupt elements to book. “During the anti-graft drive, legal actions are being taken against those found guilty, including government employees and politicians,” she added.

The national anti-graft body has already urged the Singapore government to provide it information related to the Bangladeshis who are involved in gambling in casinos there, Sheikh Hasina said.

Responding to a question from JP MP Rustum Ali Faraji, she said the government has adopted a ‘zero-tolerance’ policy against all social criminal activities, including corruption, terrorism, drug abuse and gambling. ”The drive of the law enforcement agencies will continue until the eradication of terrorism,” she said.

Strict surveillance by law enforcement agencies continues so that no one can conduct illegal casino activities in the future, the Prime Minister said.

“The ongoing drive against all sorts of criminal activities, including corruption, drugs, terrorism and gambling, will continue covering all the sectors and places -- district, upazila and municipality,” she said.
