Bangladesh stands the second most corrupted country in South Asia, according to Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB).
In addition, Bangladesh ranked 149 in the world, 13th from bottom, according to the Corruption Perceptions Index 2018.
Earlier in 2017, the position was 17th in the corruption index.
TIB Executive Director Dr Iftekharuzzaman unveiled the report at a press conference in the city’s Midas Centre this morning.
The report also stated that it is embarrassing to see Bangladesh at the second lowest position in South Asia.
