Govt has zero tolerance against casino, gambling

Says law minister

Law Minister Anisul Huq yesterday said the government has taken zero tolerance policy against casinos and gambling.

“Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has the courage to capture the offenders whoever they may be or which party they belong to,” he said about the ongoing drives against casinos and gambling, while speaking as chief guest at a discussion on “Indemnity: a black chapter” organised by Bangabandhu Sangskritik Jote, a cultural organisation, at Jatiya Press Club.

Anisul said BNP men are seen to be much vocal about casino now, although they cannot dare expel those from the party, who embezzled money of orphans.

“Don’t teach us the zero tolerance policy against corruption. All of your party are involved in corruption. You are making hue and cry as you have been tried,” he said, pointing to BNP.

The law minister said only Sheikh Hasina can take action against the corrupt and make Bangladesh free from corruption.

“As Sheikh Hasina abides by the rule of law, she has proved that the Indemnity Ordinance is a black law. She has taken necessary steps for holding trials of the killings of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, four national leaders and war criminals,” Anisul Huq said.

Former state minister for information Tarana Halim presided over the meeting where actors Enamul Haque, Azizul Hakim, Reaz, Amirul Haque Chowdhury and Mannan Hira also spoke.
