Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said the Anti-Corruption Commission has already urged the Singapore government to provide information about Bangladeshis who are involved in gambling in the casinos there.
The premier made the remark today at the Parliament in reply to a question from Jatiya Party lawmaker Mujibul Haque, reports UNB.
Sheikh Hasina also said the anti-graft commission has been working to bring the corrupt elements to book.
"During the anti-graft drive, legal actions are being taken against those found guilty, including government employees and politicians," she added.
"The drive by law enforcement and other agencies concerned will continue until the elimination of crimes from all spheres of the state and society," she said replying to a starred question from Jatiya Party (JP) MP Rowshan Ara Mannan during her question-answer session in the Parliament.
Responding to a question from JP MP Rustum Ali Faraji, Sheikh Hasina said the government has adopted a "zero-tolerance" policy against all social criminal activities, including corruption, terrorism, drugs abuse and gambling. "The drive of the law enforcement agencies will continue until the eradication of terrorism," she said.
