Bangladesh: Reject police proposal for immunity from prosecution for torture

Index Number: ASA 13/1173/2015

Following reports that the Bangladeshi police force is proposing immunity from prosecution for acts of torture by police officers, Amnesty International is urging the Government of Bangladesh to: reject the proposal outright and publically declare that no one against whom sufficient and admissible evidence of involvement in torture exists will be shielded from prosecution; and take decisive action to investigate all complaints and reports of torture without exception and bring those responsible to justice.
