Bangladesh: Stop extrajudicial executions of Rohingya refugees and end restrictions to their freedom of movement

, Index number: ASA 13/1317/2019

Amnesty International is deeply concerned about what appears to be a series of recent extrajudicial executions of Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazaar refugee camps. Since the killing on 23 August 2019, of a local Bangladeshi youth leader from the ruling political party Awami League, at least seven Rohingya refugees have been killed by Bangladesh police in alleged ‘gunfights’ in the span of just three weeks. Bangladesh authorities must respect and protect the human rights of Rohingya, including their right to life.
