Letter From America: Back in Bangladesh – the face of endemic corruption

I arrived in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka last week via the Emirates Airlines. The flight from Newark to Dubai was delayed by an hour and the in-flight service crew were poorly prepared to do their task satisfactorily. Upon arrival in Dhaka airport, I waited for another hour and a half before I could collect all my baggage. One of the bags missed a lock; the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) agents had removed the lock in Newark airport to check the bag. Nothing fortunately was missing from the bag.
