The newly appointed Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Ghulam Rahman on Wednesday stated that the ACC will prove once again that nobody is above the law.
Ghulam took office on May 1 when the Former ACC chief Hasan Mashud Chowdhury stepped down on April 3.
Ghulam said that the anti-corruption drive of the last caretaker government was not only necessary but was right and justified. Furthermore, he said that there are still some people who think that they are above the law and the ACC will ensure punishment for all corrupt people.
He has vowed to not only continue with the anti-corruption drive in the future but also is also determined to do so by following the rules and regulations and be just and reasonable.
He also said that the ACC will inquire into cases filed by it in which people received capital punishment for trivial crime on recommendations of the government. He said that “if injustice was done to anyone the commission will consider those in accordance with the depth of the crime”.
When asked about the charges against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and opposition leader Khaleda Zia presses during the caretaker government, he said “They got justice in people’s court.”
