ACC Chairman and his two deputies resign.
Does anyone know anything about the UN Convention Against Corruption? Possible implications on BD?

Quote:
Dhaka, Feb 6 (bdnews24.com) – Anticorruption Commission chairman Sultan Hossain Khan Tuesday said he would resign along with his two deputies from the graft watchdog Wednesday.

The announcement came after Sultan and commissioners Moniruzzaman Mia and Maniruddin Ahmed went to the Bangabhaban to meet President Iajuddin Ahmed.

Sultan broke the news on resignation to reporters shortly after 1pm.

Moniruzzaman told bdnews24.com by phone: "The President invited us to tea. It is taking some time. I didn't have the resignation letter with me."

Their decision to quit the watchdog was part of a plan by the interim government for a major shake-up to make it an effective player in controlling pervasive graft.

In his first address to the nation in January, interim leader Fakhruddin Ahmed pledged to make the graft watchdog effective.

Also last month, adviser MA Matin came down heavily on the commission chairman and two commissioners, saying the commission must be freed from "clowns".

Later Sultan said they would step aside if the president asked them to do so.

The four-party coalition government led by Khaleda Zia dismantled the then Bureau of Anticorruption—itself plagued with corruption and incompetence—to form the ACC under donors' prescription.

But since its inception in late 2004, the commission has failed to function properly for what the officials said was a lack of back-up laws and manpower to support activities.


The interim council of advisers Monday decided to sign the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.

The convention will oblige Bangladesh to extend greater recognition to the roles of civil society as well as citizens in fighting corruption, the local chapter of the Berlin-based graft watchdog Transparency International said.

Earlier, the cabinet formed a committee to find ways to make the ACC functional.

The joint forces arrested the former lawmaker at 12:30pm.

Mufti Shahidul faces allegations of his involvement in militancy and bomb attacks in Bangladesh.

If I'm not wrong, Monica Yunus is the one living in NY? I thought that's the same one who I saw on TV in all those news when he won Noble prize.

Either way, why does Fazal mamu wanna know about it? Clerify please.

Bhaigna.... our past history is not very good about politicians and their son's kirti cormo.... you just name it... from full size neta to pati neta....eevery one is having problem controlling their son's uncontrolled behaviour..... the sons are their (one of the many) black spots in their career:

The sons of Sheik Mujib, Ershad (remember his son was tring to hijack his girlfriend or something like that), Zia, Saifur Rahman, Iazzuddin Ahmed are just few examples.

Thats why I was trying to make sure that Dr. Yunus doesn't have any son to drag him down. Good to know that he doesn't.

At times daughter can turn to more evil and destruction or allow more evil to rule than the sons.

Elizabeths (how many you want), that thai lady, Hasina, saifur rahman's daughter in law etc.

it is greed that stimulates that behavior. And certainly generalizing women are more greedy than men. Most of the time they are never satisfied be it jewelary, cloths, shoes, money for shopping or power.

This is the best thing that can comeout of this caretaker govt. All they have to do is make sure that other future party cannot get rid of it. Like engrave in the constitution and seal it.

Could you enlighten me on this? How do you think it'll help BD?
And yes, engraving it in constitution and sealing it will help if we know what are its benefits

Army has no intention to capture power
Army chief Lt Gen Moeen also says armed forces not running country, under new situation politicians won't be able to do politics squandering money
Unb, Bandarban


Army Chief Lt General Moeen U Ahmed yesterday categorically said the military has no intention to capture power or run the government, but they are assisting the caretaker government to put the country back on the right track."The army has no intention to take over. We are not even running the government. But we like to see this government successful as we want to put the country on the right track through concerted efforts of all," he said.
General Ahmed reflected some harsh truths about the trend of politics, mindset of politicians and governance while exchanging views with representatives of the civil administration, political party leaders, journalists and representatives of government and non-government agencies at Bandarban Cantonment
The army chief said the nation needs efficient and honest politicians to move forward as "our politicians do not understand anything beyond their self-interest."
He said a new situation has been ushered in now in the country where politicians will not be able to do politics squandering money. Those who could not do politics so long for want of money will now get the opportunity.
Explaining the background of the promulgation of a state of emergency in the country by the president, General Moeen said the past caretaker government had tired to forge consensus between the two parties for holding a credible election. But it failed, as neither of the two was ready to budge an inch, which resulted in deterioration of the situation.
In this context, he recalled the grisly scene on Dhaka streets on October 28 last year when some people trampled to death another man-a scene "never seen anywhere in the world. This brutal scene was not only witnessed by people at home but also abroad and "everyone has hated us".
He noted that unilateral elections (Jan 22) would not have been accepted at home and abroad and all, including army, BDR, police and ansars, would have been blamed for that debacle.
Under the circumstances, the president decided to impose the state of emergency. He also decided to step down from the office of chief adviser and appointed a new chief adviser. He said new advisers were appointed on the criteria of honesty, competence and sincerity.
"Now it needs people's support. This opportunity will not come time and again," the army chief said, adding that it "should not happen so".
General Moeen urged all to come forward to make a fresh start in national life with a clean slate. "Let's cooperate with this government so we can steer the nation forward," he said.
In an apparent emotion-choked voice, the army chief said the country was destroyed in last 35 years. He likened the predicament of the country to a derailed train.
"We need a heavy crane to put the train back on the track--and strength of the people is the crane. Once you can put the train on the track, it will move smoothly," he said in metaphorical terms about the imperative of a rescue operation in such situation.
Citing corruption an example of degeneration of the polity, the general deplored that because of disputes over who will get the "10 percent" kickbacks, a $ 200m machine-readable passport project could not be implemented.
He said government provides subsidy for fertiliser to help the poor farmers, but, unfortunately, those fertilisers were smuggled out of the country by the vested quarters.
Referring to recent incidents of arson in garment factories that earn 70 percent of country's foreign exchange, General Moeen deplored that this export industry was burnt and destroyed in a planned way. "There is politics behind it," he said, adding, "We even do not try to understand our own well-being."
" We have eaten up the vitals of the country over the years, leaving the country like a skeleton."
About national or voter ID card, General Moeen said some intellectuals said that it will require Tk 1000 crore and five years time. But, he said they have made a calculation that suggests that ID card for the voters is possible within 10-12 months at an estimated cost of Tk 300 crore.
Lashing out at massive corruption, the general wondered how the expensive BMW, Mercedes Benz, Ford cars could ply the streets in Dhaka when people in America even have to think twice before buying such luxury cars. "Where does the money come from? This is our farmers' money," he said.
Referring to non-payment of electricity bills, he said the rich people and companies whose monthly income is Tk 5 lakh or Tk 10 lakh do not pay the bill. But if any action is taken against the defaulters, they go to court for writs. "If we could not change this situation, our next generation would call us name," he told the meeting.
General Moeen said the present government has separated the judiciary from the executive in seven days and is trying to reform the Election Commission. He said the reforms will be brought in the Election Commission so that corrupt politicians cannot do politics.
Criticising the mindset of the politicians, the general said the time has come to stop the politics capitalising on money. The nation needs a competent political leadership so Bangladesh could achieve development and progress like Malaysia and Singapore.
He told the meeting that 90 per cent people support the present caretaker government and the government should now move the country in right direction with the strength of this support.

I'm fascinated to see that this is being told offcially and I see the ray of light for real positive change in Bangladesh politics. By thw way, I couldn't gather which incident it was referring to (I apologize for being such an ignorant):

"he recalled the grisly scene on Dhaka streets on October 28 last year when some people trampled to death another man-a scene "never seen anywhere in the world. This brutal scene was not only witnessed by people at home but also abroad and "everyone has hated us".

Any hint who who was beating whom and when?

Police van running over so-called protester and killing him on the spot and then dragging by the feet of the dead body and removing it after an hour so. I think that was the incident that he is refering too. This was video taped and air through the news.

If he means what he says, this general sounds like the Anti-Ershad i.e. complete opposite of Ershad.

Very straight forward and candid statements.

If he can stay away from power and keep acting as the big stick for the CT government - this will be a great precedence.

I know that many will find many faults with his statements, but General Moeen had the best chance to usurp power when all the hartal/Oborodh was going on. The fact that he did not do anything at that time and now is fiercely supporting the CT government - this shows very postive signs for our country's future.

Praying for CT Govt, General Moeen and our dear old Bangladesh.

The latest guest behind the bars: AKM Mosharraf. He was the former state minister for energy under BNP...although started as Jatiyo Party member. Got arrested from his place in Mymensingh. The funniest part is:

Quote:
Caretaker of Mosharraf's house Dulal told bdnews24.com that the joint forces arrived shortly after 9pm and asked him to go with them.

Mosharraf took some time to have his meal before he was led away.

Educationists for changes to University Ordinance

Educationists Thursday railed against politics on the campus, both by teachers and students, what they said was the key reason for backwardness of higher education. They came to a consensus that the University Ordinance 1973 should be amended to live up to global standards of education.

AKM Mosharraf is one of the most corrupt person in the history of bangladesh. He made a lot of money during the Ershad regime (infamlous KAFCO deal) and then with BNP goverment as energy minister.

Not at all. The police van incident happened in December. He is referring to the case of AL goons lynching an unarmed JI worker to death. There were 3 or 4 such lynchings on October 28th.

As mentioned in my previous post, it the case of AL workers (criminals) using their oars to beat unarmed opponents to deaths. Those cowards are only brave when its 10 of them on one unarmed person. They deserve to be hanged in public.

He was refering to the incident the day after K Zia resigned as prime minister. It is widely reported that BAL hooligans beat the Chatro Shibir leader. The greasly scene is available in you tube.

Sorry - can you please be specific - who that "biggest criminal" is? By the way, highlighting someone by HE, I understand it means God as we usually refer God by HE with a capital H.
