Bangladesh: Oral Statement: Item 6: Consideration of UPR reports: UN Human Rights Council, 55th session, 26 February – 5 April

Amnesty International welcomes the government’s commitment to investigate and prosecute human rights violations by its security forces and to uphold the principle of non-refoulment for Rohingya refugees. Regrettably, the government has not accepted recommendations to abolish the death penalty, nor to ratify the Convention on Enforced Disappearances and the Refugee Convention. The organization is also disappointed that the government failed to accept any of the 11 recommendations specifically calling for the repeal or amendment of the CSA, in compliance with international human rights law.
