Impunity to gold smugglers and associates
Almost every day we come across the news of gold smuggling through our international airports at Dhaka and Chittagong. Those who are involved and get caught are not given due and exemplary punishment and that is one of the reasons why they continue to commit this crime. The way the smuggling is carried out indicates that the immigration/custom and airport officials could be involved. And the amount of gold that is seized is only the tip of the iceberg. Unbridled corruption has plagued almost all sectors.
