Political crime, Gov. Blagojevich & Bangladesh December 18, 2008

Tags: , ,

Gov. Rod Blagojevich of Illinois is caught off foot very recently for his alleged crime of selling the Obama’s senate seat. The FBI first revealed the wrongdoing. FBI also told that they have found no involvement of the President-elect with the matter. Obama asked the Governor to resign. Legal procedure will be drawn against the accused. The ordinary citizen was following the development intently.

Political crime as an entity is not recognizable in Bangladesh though crimes of such nature are not in dearth here.

According to Wikipedia-political crime is a ‘conduct which would not normally be considered criminal per se, i.e. that is not antisocial according to those who engage in it, is criminalized at the convenience of the group holding power’. It also includes the acceptance of Criminalized politically motivated behaviour of the party activists.

So, when a party sell the nominations against money to someone else who is or is not a regular member of the party may be considered a political crime.Such nomination business in parliamentary election is rampant in Bangladesh but you can’t catch the offenders by normal legal procedures.

In Bangladesh political crimes are needed to be defined and appropriate legal steps are also needed to be framed to make the democracy running smoothly in this country.

I like your blog!

Care to exchange links?

I am not looking just for agreeable bloggers, but for wit and intelligence for broad discussions, which your blog has.

I was a different kind of Presidential candidate who made a large contribution to the issues adopted by all the candidates, including the issues adopted by our new President, and I still want to help improve America’s future.

Blagojevich has been so successful at making himself and his office look ridiculous that about a million people are now able to remember and maybe even spell his crazy name — that’s sort of like an accomplishment, right?
