The Anti-Corruption Commission on Sunday conducted a drive at Comilla civil surgeon office over receipt the allegations of taking Taka 8000-9000 as bribe from people for giving health certificates to go abroad.
Talking about the drive, ACC’s director general (admin) Mohammad Munir Chowdhury said, ‘The drive was conducted on specific allegations and aimed at stopping corruption in distributing health certificates among the people, who wanted to go abroad.’
A two-member team of the ACC conducted the drive and inquired about allegations received by its hotline 106 and came to know that the people who wanted to go abroad have to pay bribe for getting health certificates.
They have also been compelled to conduct some medical tests at private hospitals instead of public hospitals and have become victim of corruption and irregularities.
While talking to ACC personnel, the civil surgeon of Cumilla has promised to stop such irregularities and corruption in a week.
The ACC team later distributed anti-graft leaflets among the people to make them aware against corruption.
