Anti-Corruption Commission chairman Iqbal Mahmood on Monday said that bureaucratic intricacy was a major reason of corruption and public suffering in the service sectors.
‘Systematic loopholes created such bureaucratic intricacy and it is the major cause that inspires the violation of existing rules and regulations in service sectors,’ he said addressing a signing of memorandum of understanding between ACC and Transparency International Bangladesh at the commission head office in Dhaka.
He said the commission had formed 22 teams to find out reasons of corruption at different public offices which are directly involved with providing services to the people.
The teams found that most corruption and irregularities took place at the offices as there are huge loopholes in the rules, he said.
TIB executive director Iftekharuzzaman and ACC director general M Shamsul Arefin signed the MoU to work together in 15 points of corruption prevention works, including public hearing, research and advocacy.
Iftekharuzzaman said some recent activities of the ACC had earned public trust and the government should help the commission to continue its drive against the corrupt people in different sectors.
Among others ACC commissioner AFM Aminul Islam, its secretary Abu M Mustafa Kamal, director generals M Moidul Islam, Farid Ahmed Bhuyan, M Atiqur Tahman Khan and Muhammad Munir Chowdhury present on the occasion.
