Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), which has decided to launch a drive against bribe-takers, is going to inform people very soon through media about its trap-case drive and the process of lodging complaints with the ACC against the dishonest officials.
"In order to trap the bribe-takers, we need complaints…To inform people about the drive and the process of complaining to the ACC, we're going to publicise it through the media, possibly within a couple of days", a source told the UNB Saturday.
He said the process certainly has begun to catch the bribe-takers by trapping them with the help of the complainants and once the office order is issued, the ACC would inform people through the media.
"The process to set traps to catch the bribe-takers have already been approved by the commission", he said.
"The chairman has approved the formation of trap parties", he added.
The decision to combat the cancerous menace was taken in an ACC meeting Tuesday amid widespread allegations that nothing moves in many government offices without speed money. The meeting also approved the strategies to set traps to catch those who demand kickbacks in return for work.
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 the police and later a case, named 'Trap Case', will be filed against him.
While talking to the members of newly formed Reporters Against Corruption (RAC), ACC Chairman Justice Sultan Hossain Khan disclosed that the commission has targeted 12 government organisations wherein the watchdog would catch the corrupt into traps using the bribers as decoys.
Police, lower courts, land-registry offices, licence offices, container ports (customs), airports, Chittagong customs, and health and education sectors are among the spots where the mousetrap will be laid.
