Bad news for the dishonest government officials. Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has decided to catch corrupt persons with the help of possible bribers.
A source at the Commission told UNB that the decision to combat the menace was taken at a meeting Tuesday as nothing moves in many government offices without speed money.
The meeting, according to the source, also approved the strategies to set traps to catch those who demand kickbacks in return for work, earning the country a bad name of most corrupt country in the world.
"Despite lack of manpower, the Commission will shortly form 'Trap Teams' that will start working within two weeks," the source said adding that it's corruption that eats up the vitals of our national economy.
If anybody complains to the Commission that bribe has been demanded from him, the ACC team with the help of the complainant himself would trap the bribe-seeker to catch him red-handed.
After examining all the evidences, the bribe-seeker would be handed over to police and later a case, named 'Trap Case', will be filed against him.
According to the source, the now-defunct Bureau of Anti-Corruption (BAC) could not use 'Trap Case' as an effective tool in combating corruption. "If the ACC wants to be successful in its crusade against the menace, it will have to use the 'Trap Case' strategy effectively," he said.
