I have consistently been hesitant to utilize this space for my sincere belief on issues of significance or no significance. We serve news/examination and I am glad to leave it to the perusers/watchers to shape their own feeling, notwithstanding a not very many special cases when I neglected to control myself.
In this specific occasion, things went to a moment that I believed I owed a clarification to a huge number of our crowd. The speed at which the controllers moved after our speculation manage (with Bangladesh’s second biggest resource the board firm) on bdnews24.com was surprising — and incomprehensibly, from an alternate perspective, admirable for sure.
The mid-October evening story set off a moment Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) choice to “end” the arrangement (done after hardest of due constancy), a letter to the financial specialist just as a press proclamation—no different evening. One would just wish reactions to heap abnormalities in Bangladesh’s pained capital market and protests from various partners would have comparative speed!
Letters were despatched to the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies and Firms in a flash, asking the administration office not to enlist move of offers that the venture bargain involved. Proclamations arrived at the pertinent correspondents a lot snappier than expected. Letters landed at the workplaces of the speculator LR Global and the investee bdnews24.com in a matter of moments.
The little — truly, little given the prerequisite of Bangladesh’s biggest news distributer for its strength, development, extension, overhauls or more all liabilities amassed throughout the years because of unfriendly treatment by a segment of the promotion business agents who wouldn’t move except if you reacted to their PR demands just as others I would prefer not determine at this stage — venture implied a great deal to us.
That would clarify why an offer esteemed at Tk 37,100 was administered for just Tk 12,500. We expected to free unpaid compensations from partners, for a considerable lot of whom the organization was a while behind standard installment plan.
Presently, the greatest inquiry is: should I intentional, freely, on an issue that is still I thought—and consistently trusted in such conditions—I shouldn’t, which was the reason, on 26 November, I can’t, when drawn closer by the media, to talk about or uncover subtleties of my trades with the ACC examination official for five (in my view, pointlessly) extended periods of time.
Precisely 15 days sooner, on 11 November, The greatest and the primary question, properly, was the reason I chose to turn up notwithstanding being guaranteed, verbally, of moving the ACC meeting date that I had looked for through a conventional letter to the ACC.
The appropriate response, for me, was straightforward: I didn’t get a conventional reaction to my proper letter. Nor did they give whatever would demonstrate they to be sure gotten my letter. Imagine a scenario in which they would exploit my non-appearance.
Truth be told I had next to no confidence in the state organization, not on the grounds that the manner in which it moved in this occurrence. That it frequently neglects to satisfy norms expected of it is a position I have freely held since it was made as an “autonomous” Commission supplanting the old Bureau of Anti-Corruption. The establishing magistrates broadly battled each other with the full view (gave by the media) of the individuals from the general population.
What’s more, during the 2007-8 military-controlled overseer government, it did a wide range of chaotic stuff, made many messed up endeavors to arraign numerous legislators, the present head administrator notwithstanding.
There are such huge numbers of prominent instances of disappointments on some portion of the ACC to verify feelings. I will not delve into the subtleties or reasons why, at any rate not right now.
So I turned up on schedule while hanging tight for a reaction till the latest possible time, possibly to be told when I showed up I didn’t need to. As I ventured out, I was unable to stay away from the holding up media.
I responded to every one of the inquiries and explained my own just as bdnews24.com’s position. My announcements were secured by every one of the news sources, including bdnews24.com.
For anybody with some information on the foundation to the ACC activity and some comprehension of the issues in question, the clarification given to the media ought to have been sufficient to carry a conclusion to the ACC system, depicted by a previous partner in a web based life post as “badgering”.
The issue has been examined by more than one state organization—openly just as, may I dare say now, off camera—in light of the fact that the claims or bits of gossip/tattles (spread through online networking and different methods in the number one spot up to the ACC move) were of genuine nature. Cash, for one, originated from London. Cash took off to London was another.
And all, as per claims that drifted around at the time, to subsidize hostile to state (read against government) exercises! The cruelest part was, the individuals who organized everything knew very well that cash just changed hands between two organizations consolidated in Bangladesh and worked under Bangladesh laws.
However the wrathful and influential individuals were given a free rein when they acted from behind the stage. What’s more, the individuals who helped them spread the purposeful publicity knew it as well. What’s more, once more, the individuals who arranged “reports” implied for individuals at the top were completely mindful of it as well.
