The Commission on Sunday decided to send a letter to the ministry asking it to take departmental action against Mustakim Billah Faruque, the outgoing Mymensingh DC, a top ACC official said wishing anonymity.

ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahmood has already instructed the director general of the commission (legal) to send a letter to the Public Administration Secretary in this regard, reports UNB.

The letter, signed by ACC secretary Abu M Mustafa Kamal, will be sent to the ministry soon,” the official added.

He said such unusual farewells to a DC promote corruption, and this is why the Commission has decided to send a letter to the Public Administration Ministry as per section 17 of the Anti-Corruption

Commission Act 2004, seeking action against the bureaucrat.

According to media reports, Mustakim has recently been transferred to the Civil Aviation and Tourism Ministry as a deputy secretary. Before joining his new assignment, he was accorded 35 lavish farewell

parties arranged by upazila parisads, local educational institutions and cultural organisations from September 3 to 18 last.

The reports said Mustakim joined the farewells wearing king’s costumes riding a horse cart. He was also learned to have received many gifts from the organisers.

Sections 17 (g) and (k) of the ACC law state for promoting the values of honesty and integrity to prevent corruption and take measures to build mass awareness against corruption, and performing any other work considered necessary for the prevention of corruption.
