Bangladesh appoints new graft body chief

Article Date: 
1 May 2009

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's three-month old government has appointed a former bureaucrat as the new chief of the independent Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) nearly a month after resignation of former army chief Hassan Mashhud Chowdhury.

A government statement last night announced appointment of former secretary to the government Ghulam Rahman, currently serving as the chairman of Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission.

The government also downgraded the status of the ACC chairman to a Supreme Court judge from the status of a minister, which was being enjoyed by General Chowdhury.
