Bangladesh: Further information: 23 men granted bail but fear for safety remains
Twenty-three of the 28 men arrested at a social event outside of Dhaka on 19 May have been granted bail. Though initially apparently held on suspicion of breaching the prohibition of ‘carnal intercourse against the order of nature’ in the Penal Code, the 28 were charged under the Narcotics Control Act 1990. A bail hearing is set for 21 June for the other five. Individuals known to those charged have been called in for questioning.
