Bangladesh: Climate of impunity prevents adequate protection of human rights: Amnesty International submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review
Amnesty International has prepared this submission for the UN Universal Periodic Review of Bangladesh in April 2013. The organization expresses concern about torture and other ill-treatment by security agencies. A climate of impunity shields perpetrators from justice. Other concerns raised include the failure by the authorities to prevent Bengali settlers from confiscating land from Indigenous Peoples in the Chittagong Hill Tracts; the death penalty; enforced disappearances; war crime trials; and harassment of journalists.
