TIB submits survet inf to SC, Dhaka, Dec 29

Transparency International, Bangladesh (TIB) has submitted all the data and information of its recent household survey to the Supreme Court.

The information were sent to Supreme Court registrar Ashraful Islam on Wednesday.

Ashraful Islam told that they had received the documents, but did not yet go through those.

The court on Tuesday had asked TIB to submit the survey data and information.

Welcoming the apex court's move, TIB executive director Iftekharuzzaman had told on Tuesday, "We see this as a normal process. We'll submit the information tomorrow (Wednesday), which have been sought for."

TIB in its report 'Corruption in Service Sectors: National Household Survey 2010', released on Dec 23, said the High Court was the most corrupt in the judiciary, which it said was most rife with kickbacks.

The report faced a spell of negative criticism by ministers and lawyers. The TIB is also facing two cases.

On Tuesday, TIB trustee board chairman M Hafizuddin Khan said, "I hope that the court will consider those (documents) and then all misunderstandings will be resolved."

Deputy registrar Badrul Alam told that the information had been sought for cooperation. "If the allegations against the report are proved, actions would be taken," he added.
