Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Iqbal Mahmood today said the national anti-graft agency will intensify its drive to bring justice to those involved in corruption in the health sector and during relief distribution.
"Although the commission's regular activities have been suspended due to coronavirus pandemic, it will intensify its drive against those involved in corruption in the relief and health sectors," he told a virtual meeting.
The full commission meeting was held on the implementation of its Strategic Work Plan 2019, an ACC press release said.
Mahmood said more than 18 officers of the commission have so far been infected with coronavirus, while two promising officers died of Covid-19.
Amid this adverse situation, he said, the ACC officials are still filing cases, arresting suspects, summoning the accused and interrogating them.
"Perform your duties following the health guidelines. If necessary, conduct inquiry and investigation activities staying at home. In such cases, the file register must be followed in tracking documents and the ACC secretary should be informed of it," he added.
ACC commissioners AFM Aminul Islam and Md Mozammel Haque Khan, and senior ACC officials joined the virtual meeting.
