The Supreme Court could not open the CDS with
STATA and SPSS files regarding the TIB household survey on service
The household survey released recently by Transparency International
Bangladesh (TIB) showed the judiciary as the most corrupt among the
13 service sectors.
TIB sent the two CDs to the apex court on January 4. Since the
Supreme Court could not open the CDs, it wrote a letter to TIB today
(Thursday with a request to send them hard copy of the survey along
with questionnaire and related information.
TIB executive director Dr Iftekharuzzaman welcomed the Supreme Court’
s intent to get the information and said they would send the hard
copy of its household survey with answers by Sunday (January 9).
He, however, said the names and identities of the information
providers would not be disclosed in accordance with the nationally
and internationally recognized rules.
Iftekharuzzaman said there is no room for any doubt about the
acceptability of the surveyed information and its scientific analysis.
He expressed the hope that effective steps would be taken to prevent
corruption taking into consideration the results of the survey.
