Sharif Uddin applies for job reinstatement
Terminated assistant director of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), Sharif Uddin, has applied for reinstatement in the job.
He submitted an application to the ACC chairman yesterday morning. In his application, Sharif iterated the achievements of his career, and appealed to that regard.
On February 16, the ACC had given him stand release as per 54 (2) of ACC (staff) rules, 2008.
Sharif had been conducting investigations into corruption allegations against different offices and hospitals.
He was posted at the Chattogram office for three years before being transferred in 2021. During his stint in Chattogram, he was investigating land acquisition scams in Cox's Bazar and had recommended that the ACC file corruption cases against a syndicate in the district.
The syndicate had looted public money by forging documents, and included a deputy commissioner, a deputy secretary, and a superintendent of police, an additional SP, a UNO and local Awami League leaders in Cox's Bazar.
Sharif was terminated following complaints filed by three individuals in September last year. Interestingly, all three were involved in the syndicate against whom Sharif had suggested prosecution.
He was transferred to Patuakhali in June last year, following this investigation.
