The Anti-corruption Commission (ACC) on Thursday said that it will look into the wealth of additional secretary of the Health Services Division Kazi Jebunnesa Begum after getting specific allegations.

ACC Commissioner (investigation) Jahurul Haque came up with the remarks while talking to the journalists at the commission’s Segunbagicha headquarters in the capital.

He said, “The commission will look into the matter if found specific allegations against the additional secretary.”

The name of additional secretary came into discussion after Prothom Alo Senior report Rozina Islam confined for over five hours and allegedly harassed at health ministry on Monday.  A Facebook post that has gone viral since Monday night claimed that Jebunnesa owns three apartments in Canada and one in East London alongside four in Dhaka.

It also alleged that she has nearly Tk 100 crore cash deposited in different bank accounts. However, the post lacks a specific source of information.
