Bangladesh's army chief General Moeen U. Ahmed said on Wednesday a crackdown to end corruption must continue until conditions were created for a healthy democracy. He presented a 7-point proposal.
"Bangladesh has now embarked on its own crusade against corruption, while following the footsteps of other south Asian countries in this regard," he told a two-day workshop organized in Dhaka by the Washington-based National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI).
Moeen suggested appointing a parliamentary ombudsman to help establish an independent and neutral judicial system.
