UK-trained security forces must stop extrajudicial executions in Bangladesh.
“The deaths must stop now, and the responsible personnel must be brought to justice without delay,” Abbas Faiz said. Comments and announcements from Bangladeshi government authorities over recent days have demonstrated a hostile defiance in response to national and international calls to address the claims. The Bangladeshi Home Minister, Shara Khatun, yesterday denied that extra-judicial executions have ever taken place in Bangladesh during the time of the present government and today went on to accuse human rights organisations of "siding with the criminals"
Recently, Wikileaks sources alleged that UK police have been training the RAB in Bangaldesh. Abbas Faiz, added “Any country that knowingly trains a force, which systematically violates human rights, might itself bear some responsibility for those violations.”
