In the country where there are irregularities, corruption must be prevented. It has to be more rigorous. ACC Commissioner (Investigation) AFM Aminul Islam made these remarks while addressing the chief guest at ACC's mass hearing on Tuesday at Shaheed Munshi Fazlur Rahman Hall.
He said that our aim is to know the organization at the field level, how the office is doing, how the service providers are providing services. Many times the head of the organization does not even know what the irregularities are. Mass hearing marks the way of corruption. The commissioner said the citizens are the owners of this country. The ACC took effect in the 2007. The ACC sees two things. One is prevention, the other is remedial. We can ensure 73 percent penalty for every case we make. We want to take this rate in 100 percent.
Referring to various initiatives to create awareness among the students about corruption, he said, we have stored 'Satata Store' in 5 thousand schools, to teach values. Where there is no seller. Our children need to be good people. The goal is not to make money by torturing people.
