I don’t like character assassination: MuhithUnited News of Bangladesh . Dhaka
The finance minister, AMA Muhith, on Sunday said he never liked character assassination.
‘All my life, I never liked character assassination,’ he told reporters when his comments were sought on the World Bank’s suggestion for making public the bank’s letters to the government regarding the Padma Bridge corruption allegation.
Muhith was talking to the journalists on the sidelines of a conference at a city hotel on Sunday morning.
The finance minister’s comment came following an interview of World Bank country director Ellen Goldstein with an English daily where she said the government can disclose the Bank’s reports containing the ‘evidence of corruption’ in the Padma Bridge project for the sake of transparency and public interest.
She, however, said the WB cannot itself disclose the reports because it has an obligation to each member country, including Bangladesh, to maintain all referral reports confidential.
Instead of giving any direct reply to the World Bank’s country director’s proposition, the finance minister made his own remark.
