Readers Respond

Here are some comments that came in response to Tuesday's The Daily Star news report headlined “The enemy within”
Objective Observer
Thanks for this investigative report. The ACC should immediately take up the matter and initiate a stern legal process.
Nobody has been arrested yet in this biggest corruption case and TIB is mysteriously silent. It is possible only in Bangladesh.
The board of Sonali Bank must resign to make way for the investigation.
Md. Shahinur Rahman
The accused persons should be brought to justice; they are enemies of the country.
Fida Likhon
How can our country develop when corruption engulfs every sector? Our country is poor because of massive corruption.
What we need in this country is a leader who is honest, educated and knows what he/she is doing. One thing I found in our country is that honest people have no respect and the dishonest one are respected like kings.
W. Zaman Manik
This is called real investigative journalism. It is one of the best investigations to find out the truth. Congratulations.
Journalists can investigate many more issues of the country and disclose those publicly.
How obnoxious this DMD is! These heinous persons should be given exemplary punishment.
Rizwan Islam
For unearthing the largest financial scam in the history of Bangladesh, I salute the audit team and the brave and honest officers in it.
I would like to know, if the finance minister and the secretary of banking division will take any responsibility for the biggest disaster in the banking sector. What action would the PM take against the culprits and thus avert any future crisis like this?
This nicely written report shows how our big institutions work and take decisions. Very alarming indeed!
Sengupta, Canada
Each and every enemy of our state should be brought to book so that no one can ever try to exploit the country's interest.
We salute the scam buster of Sonali Bank. If CIB report is required for every loan, then how come Bangladesh Bank was quiet for so long? Who are the influential people of the government involved in this scam?
Harun Rashid
Finance Minister, please come forward to give them exemplary punishment and also find out those who are behind the scene. Congratulations to those honest officers who played a patriotic role and to The Daily Star for this good report.
Raihan Sharif
The report cannot be called 'investigative' since it happened after the fact was revealed , but it is still a pioneering piece of work. The one flaw is that there is no background report about the DMD, Mainul Haque.
It goes without saying that some bigwigs were definitely involved in the biggest financial scam in Bangladesh's history. People in the banking sector were not altogether unaware of what was cooking inside these suspected branches but a veiled conspiracy of silence pervaded. Along with the recovery of the swindled money, we want to see exemplary punishment to those involved in defrauding people's trust. The government should also soon create an economic intelligence unit under the ministry of finance to closely monitor banks and financial institutions and allied organizations dealing with public finance.
