Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Iqbal Mahmood on Tuesday said that the commission is going to crack down harder on the corrupt people.
He said that the ACC actions against the corrupt persons will be visible within two months.
“We will employ all of our forces in uprooting corruption, which is also a commitment of the new government,” he said while briefing journalists in front of ACC office at Segunbagicha in the capital.
“The Awami League government’s commitment to stamping out corruption and irregularities has made us confident,” he added.
ACC Chairman said they would take swift actions in case of any irregularities like recruitment business, admission business and commission business.
ACC is collecting newly-elected lawmakers’ statements that were submitted to the Election Commission before the polls, Mahmood said in replying a question and added that it is not matter of punishment. “Where there is corruption, there is an action,” he asserted on the occasion.
In replying to another question, the ACC chairman said they would investigate the corruption allegations of outgoing ministers and will make those visible if the allegations are found true.
He also talked about financial crimes and said that ACC would work to curb corruption in the sector.
But, ACC will not directly be involved in mega projects and their manpower recruitments, he said.
“We will monitor and take action. We strongly believe the newly-formed government will uproot the corruption as morning shows the day,” ACC chairman said.
