Bangladeshi expatriates, who have been living in different parts of the world, now can be able to place allegations of corruption or irregularities to the Anti-Corruption Commission directly.

The national anti-graft agency at a meeting on Tuesday decided to receive allegations from the Bangladeshi expatriates, ACC director (public relations) and spokesman Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya said.

The expatriates are not able to register their allegations to the ACC by using the ‘106’ hotline, which was earlier introduced by the national anti-graft watchdog to receive graft allegations from commoners.

To resolve the technical problem, Pranab said, the commission decided to receive calls through a mobile phone. ‘That’s why the Bangladeshi expatriates can now place their allegations by dialing my mobile phone number — +8801716463276 — any time,’ he added.
