Gloom again over Padma
WB, ACC talk fails to reach consensus on action against Abul; anti-graft body to reinvestigate corruption allegation; expert team departs
(December 6, 2012)
ACC does not want to sue Abul, and the World Bank does not want to fund the Padma Bridge project if Abul is not sued. We hope that the Awami League government will understand this.
Are those people out of the reach of law?
Looks like the Padma bridge is being sacrificed to save the corrupt.
The message is simple. Bangladesh government protects corrupt people. Thieves and the corrupt have safe haven in Bangladesh!
One day truth will come out.
The people of Bangladesh should stop paying taxes as the government cannot prove how and where they are using the money.
After 37 years of Sheikh Mujib's killing we executed the killers. War criminals are appearing in the dock for their misdeeds in '71. How can Abul and the ACC chief be sure that they will not be tried for their acts after a span of some time and by another government?
Do not expect that Hossain and Hasan will face a trial during the lifetime of the current administration.
Abul is a firewall. He must be protected in order to save the rest.
I think ACC is not corrupt but it is under the executive's slavery. So ACC can't sue Abul.
Is individual interest more important than national development?
A Bangalee Patriot
Nobody in Bangladesh has the power to sue a patriot. So there will be no case against Abul.
Can't the ACC chairman stand up against all the pressure for the wellbeing of his own country? If he can do it, he will be remembered by the people of Bangladesh with honour and reverence.
The equation is A>B, where A = interest of Mr. Abul, and B = interest of the nation. May Allah protect us.
The ACC is turning itself into an association of the corrupt and criminals.
I think the ACC chairman has lost his credibility. It is best for him to resign before things get more complicated.
The Awami League man whom the PM even called a patriot is greater than the entire nation. Protecting the party men at the expense of national interest will be a historical blunder by the AL. Let's see what the people of Bangladesh have kept in reply for these corrupt leaders who want to sacrifice national interest for their personal gains.
