August 10, 2020

The Anti-Corruption Commission on Sunday asked Kuwait-Bangladesh Friendship Government Hospital and Regent Discovery Food and Travel Ltd to provide details of the agreement between the organisations over allegations of irregularities.

Regent Discovery Food and Travel Ltd supplied foods for physicians and health workers at the COVID-19-dedicated hospital.

In separate letters, ACC director Mir Joynul Abedin Shibli asked both the authorities to submit all necessary documents, including bills and payment details, as there was an allegation that huge irregularities took place in the food supplying process, said an ACC official.

The hospital was also asked to submit information about the accommodation of the doctors and health workers during the COVID-19 crisis, the official said.

The commission asked the authorities to submit the information by seven days.

The letters said that information and records were sought in the interest of a proper investigation into allegations of embezzlement of government funds through various irregularities and corruption.

Earlier on August 3, the commission asked the managing director of Hotel Super Star Ltd and the director of Mugda 500-bed General Hospital to submit various information and records, including the accommodation and meals of doctors, nurses and other staff engaged in providing medical services to COVID-19 patients.
