Urges ACC to cancel the decision

Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has expressed grave concern and frustration over the Anti-Corruption Commission's (ACC) latest decision about handing over the responsibility for monitoring activities of its field offices by the deputy commissioner's of concerned districts.

It feared that the decision might create hindrance in carrying out activities of ACC while investigating allegations and bringing corrupt officials to book.

Through a media statement on Friday, the anti-graft campaigner urged the ACC to cancel such decision so that the commission could act independently and neutrally under the legal power handed over to it.

TIB Executive Director Dr Iftekharuzzaman said the ACC chairman, on the last day of the DC conference on July 18, announced that a decision was taken to hand over responsibilities to monitor ACC's activities to the DCs concerned which would create conflicts in fulfilling duties assigned to both parties. 

If any such decision was taken in actual fact, he said, it would cause unnecessary interference by the administration to ACC's field level activities and would act as a supportive role for illegal and corrupt acts.

The decision would discard the national anti-graft watchdog's power and neutrality handed over to it legally, he added.
