ACC under ruling party influence: TIB

UNB, Dhaka

The Anti-Corruption Commission is influenced by the ruling party as it is soft to its politicians, according to a research report conducted by the Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB). The report was unveiled at a press conference at TIB office in the capital yesterday.

"The ACC is influenced by the ruling party directly or indirectly. The anti-graft national body is soft to politicians belonging to the ruling party. It was found in a follow-up research about the performance of ACC conducted in 2015-2018," said TIB executive director Dr Iftekharuzzaman.

Shahzada M Akram, senior programmme manager of Research and Policy of TIB and its manager Shammi

Laila Islam read out the research findings at the press conference.

 “We’ve noticed some progress in the activities of ACC during the period but there’s no progress in overall perspective,” Iftekharuzzaman told reporters.  

 “ACC interrogated several ruling party MPs on corruption charges but there’s no visible punishment against them,” he added.

 Iftekharuzzaman said the independent of ACC is limited to papers but not in practice.

 “The provision of requirement of prior government permission in filing cases against public officials must be repealed as it is unconstitutional.” he said.

 TIB submitted a total of 16 recommendationsto improve the ACC performance.
