Now was a time of settlement with the corrupt political leaders who disgraced Bangladesh. Dozens of leading politicians were arrested and prosecuted, among them a large number of former ministers. The campaign against corruption and political mismanagement was developed in an attempt to dismantle the leadership dynasties that ruled the country during much of its independence. The two former prime ministers Khaleda Zia and Hasina Wajed were arrested and charged with corruption, Wajed also for murdering political opponents. Both were denied freedom from the bail. However, a first message that both would be forced into exile was withdrawn without further explanation by the interim government after a few days. Two sons of Khaleda Zia were also arrested.
The fact that the country was put under military control in practice demonstrated to Lieutenant General Lieutenant General Moin Ahmed, who in several public statements attacked the “political class” which only caused the country harm. He also said that “we do not want to return to a chosen democracy”.

The Awami Union announced internal rule changes to deprive leader Hasina Wajed of her almost unrestricted power.
