BJSA for punishment of TIB officials

A lawyer's organisation has demanded exemplary punishment of the officials of Transparency International, Bangladesh for their unreliable and false report on corruption in judiciary.
A statement by Bangladesh Judicial Service Association on Sunday said the TIB report had tarnished the image of the country's apex court judges.

It was signed by chief of the organisation Mohammad Jahangir Hossain and general-secretary Abu Saleh Mohammad Jahirul Haque.

The TIB report, released in December, said that among the judiciary, the High Court has the worst record for exchanging kickbacks.

However, Supreme Court deputy registrar Badrul Alam Bhuyian told last Thursday that no evidence of corruption had been given to back up TIB's allegations.

The organisation also echoed the review committee, which said: "Those involved with the survey, though they are learned and conscientious, have showed a lack of responsibility while terming the judiciary corrupt without any substantial and authentic information."

The [TIB] report has tarnished the judiciary's image among the people and the judges have been humiliated socially, both at home and abroad, the evaluation report says.
