ACC makes surprise drive at BMDC


DHAKA, July 16, 2018 (BSS) – The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today
conducted a drive at the Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) after
receiving an allegation that physicians were compelled to pay bribe for
getting their certificates.

“We have sent a team of ACC to the BMDC after taking the allegation of
physicians into cognizance. The drive will help to improve the situation of
the BMDC the days to come,” said Director General (admin) of ACC Mohammad
Munir Chowdhury.

He also warned of taking actions by conducting ‘trap cases’ if bribery
continues at the BMDC.

An enforcement team of the ACC made the sudden visit to the BMDC office
at Bijoynagar in the capital this afternoon after receiving an allegation on
its hotline ‘106’.

During the drive, they found systematic fault in distributing
certificates among the physicians which encourages unscrupulous officials of
the BMDC to take bribe to this end.

The team members later met registrar and deputy registrar of the BMDC
and informed them of the matter and requested them to take effective measures
to stop irregularities in the organisation.

Anti-graft leaflets and stickers relating to ACC hotline have been
distributed among the physicians to create awareness among them.
