I didn’t succeed due to slow legal process: Ghulam Rahman

Outgoing chairman of the Anti Corruption Commission Ghulam Rahman on Sunday said he could not be successful in his task due to the delay in legal process. “Steps had been taken to prevent corruption, but I could not become successful due to the delay in legal process,” he told reporters in front of the ACC head quarters while finally leaving his office in the evening.
Earlier, at a farewell ceremony, the ACC chairman said he met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday and the Prime Minister assured him of steps to pass the amended Anti Corruption Commission law in Parliament.
About widespread corruption, he said corruption could be prevented by enhancing annual income to US$ 1500 per person and using ICT.
“Corruption dropped at the upper level, but prevails widely at ordinary level.”
Asked why he did not resign for his failure as ACC chairman, Ghulam Rahman said resignation is like suicide. “We worked for preventing corruption. I think I didn’t show any negligence in taking steps to check graft during my tenure.” (Source: UNB)
