Petition filed to investigate graft allegations against General Aziz

A petition has been submitted with the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to launch an inquiry into the corruption allegations against former Bangladesh Army Chief General Aziz Ahmed.

If this complaint is included in the schedule, the anti-corruption watchdogthe will take it into account for investigation.

Supreme Court lawyer Salah Uddin Regan submitted the petition to the ACC chairman in this regard on Wednesday (May 29).

According to the petition, the recent US sanctions against Aziz Ahmed on corruption charges, along with reports published in national daily newspapers, have tarnished the image of the Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh both nationally and internationally. 

This has damaged the worldwide reputation of the Bangladesh Army, particularly within the UN peacekeeping mission, it said. 

The lawyer also mentioned that the sanction undermines the confidence and trust of the general public in the army.
