According to the TIB chief, the law is hindering efforts to contain irregularities in the public sector

The Public Services Act 2018 will largely help in increasing irregularities among government employees as it requires the ACC to take prior permission while arresting an accused public servant, TIB) has said.

Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) Executive Director Iftekharuzzaman made the statement while addressing media on a new study titled “Integrity in Public Administration: Policy and Practice,” at its office in Dhaka on Sunday. 

“The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)  has the right to arrest even the prime minister for any anomalies, but under the new law, it cannot do so since permission of higher authorities is required,” he said.

According to the TIB chief, the law is hindering efforts to contain irregularities in the public sector and makes it an uphill task to try highly placed officials accused of graft.
