Harassments on going abroad
At last got my clearance

At-last action is taken against the government’s Burro of manpower employment and training (BMET). At Thursday, special force Rapid action battalion (RAB)set a trap at BMET office and arrests 5 employees including the assistant director.

After getting information from the people willing to go abroad, RAB set trap at the BMET office. They sign at the currency notes, and make transactions with the people willing-to-go-abroad at the BMET office as bribe, and catch 5 employees with the money. They have been sent to jail.

The arrested officials told RAB about the transaction of at least 20 lacs taka everyday as bribe. If people go directly to the BMET office themselves to take their clearance to go abroad, they must give at lease 1500 Tk. bribe, while going via any recruiting agency reduced the bribe to 500 Tk., so people were bound to go through the brokers of recruiting agencies. These officials have been suspended temporarily from their duty.

Remembering to my harassment on getting the Clarence from BMET office few days ago, I give my thanks to the government for at last taking action against these corrupted people, as I know thousands other victims will give theirs too.

At last got my clearance

Follow-up of harassments on going abroad

At Thursday afternoon they restored their server, and after standing in the queue for an hour, I got my BAIRA job seeker registration card. Immediately I ran to the nearby travel agency and my broker ran to the BMET office with my pre-filled application form.

I was really astonished entering the BMET office at 4 PM. For the first time in my life I saw government employees working after their office hour, although the motivation in doing so was just illegal money. My broker went to the office where lots of brokers were doing the same thing. He submitted the application form, went to the entry-restricted computer section, got my clearance card printed, and came back just within an hour.

Although it costs me the double amount of the actual requirements, but thanks to Allah, at last I could got my clearance.
