It is widely speculated in the media that the Government may setup a Truth Commission soon to investigate past corruptions in the country. Although most such Commissions usually deal with human rights issues, the National Accountability Bureau of Pakistan is another permanent Commission entrusted with corruption investigations. If established in Bangladesh, such a body will be a first in the whole world. The Law Adviser has commented that prosecuting thousands of corrupt ex-government employees or businessmen is unpractical given the time this Government has. Instead, probably the idea now is that people will confess in front of the Commission,pay a fine
and then will be absolved of their liabilities. This is how more or less most Commission’s operate. Given the fact that such a Commission had never been formed, it would be extremely difficult to ascertain its true nature and result of its actions.
