Jan 8: The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chairman Ghulam Rahman said the commission would take decision on the three foreign accused after getting World Bank (WB) report over the Padma Bridge graft allegation.
The three foreign accused are Ramesh Saha, Ismail and Kevin Wales.
The anti-graft body chief came up with the disclosure while talking to journalists at his ACC office on Tuesday.
Ghulam Rahman said, “It is a sensitive matter and we will take action against them after getting World Bank report.”
He added: “We are communicating with the WB expert panel and we will disclose their opinion timely.”
ACC chief also said, “We have made a transparent, neutral and investigative report and sent a statement to WB experts for reply.”
On December 17 in 2012, ACC sued seven people for their alleged involvement in much-talked-about Padma Bridge scam.
The accused are former Bridges Division Secretary Mosharraf Hossian Bhuiyan, Engineer Kazi M Ferdous, Engineer Riaz Ahmed Jaber, and Bangladesh Representative of SNC-Lavalin Golam Mostafa, SNC-Lavalin Officer Ramesh Saha, Kelvin Wales and M Ismail.
On July 29 in 2012, the WB had cancelled its $1.2 billion credit for the $2.9 billion Padma Bridge Project saying it had credible evidence of a corruption conspiracy involving Bangladeshi officials, executives of a Canadian firm and some private individuals.banglanews24.com
