Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Lt Gen (Retd) Hasan Mashhud Chowdhury yesterday urged reporters to prepare anti-graft investigative reports in their own way objectively ignoring the Official Secrecy Act and certain other laws and government rules.
The ACC chairman was speaking at a certificate distribution ceremony and discussion as chief guest at the Local Government Engineering Department Bhaban in the city's Agargaon area. Reporters against Corruption (RAC) and Commonwealth Cultural Society of Bangladesh (CCSB) jointly organized the 'Certificate Distribution Ceremony of a six-day Training Workshop for Journalists' and `Discussion Meeting on Creating Awareness in Fighting Corruption'.
Addressing the discussion meeting, the ACC chairman said the opportunities should be created so that RAC (Reporters against Corruption) and ACC could work together.
The Commission would seek assistance from the reporters, as they are at the forefront, he said.
Stressing the need for RAC to earn recognition and cooperation from ACC and other organizations, Mashhud said he would be happy if the Commission's activities could be taken forward with the help of reporters.
