Primeasia Uni become Champion at Debate for Democracy
Speakers at an event on January 07, 2017 said that the politicians had not shown strong political will to curb corruption in the country, which was impeding the fight.
Attending a debate competition on 'curb corruption: public awareness or political will', organized by Debate for Democracy at the Bangladesh Film Development Corporation in the capital, Transparency International Bangladesh executive director Iftekharuzzaman said that prevention or control of corruption was not possible without visible will of the politicians.
He opined that the authorities designated to fight corruption, including the Anti-Corruption Commission, needed a good political environment in which they could independently operate and make their moves against corruption.
He added that appropriate punishments for corrupt people would help the country build a positive image against corruption. 'Corrupt practices will cease to be in the same very moment the politicians want it… but we have not seen any such initiative', said ACC commissioner AFM Aminur Rahman.
