ACC yet to get graft information on Padma Bridge

Anti-corruption Commission (ACC) in a statement today said they are yet to get information from the Canadian investigation agencies related to involvement of any Bangladeshi in graft matter of the Padma Bridge, reports BSS.

The reports published by different newspapers regarding graft in appointing consultant to construct the Padma Bridge as “partial and self-contradictory”, the statement said.

The reports published or broadcasted by print and electronic media in the last couple of days have created confusion among the people as information of the reports were incorrect and untrue, said the statement issued by ACC Deputy Director (public relations) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.

The ACC also urged the media to make objective reporting while investigation is being carried out about any corruption or graft issue.

The World Bank earlier had sent a graft allegation to the Canadian investigation agencies to initiate legal measures for appointing consultant to construct the Padma Bridge.

The Canadian agencies arrested two officials of a Canadian company SNC-Lavalin Ramesh Saha and Mohammad Ismail-and they were later charged with Corruption of Foreign Public Official Act.
