Bangladesh: a report on the current human rights situation

This fact-finding mission report was written by David Bitel, for the Australian Section of the ICJ.

The author went to Bangladesh for two weeks in June 1990 in order:

  • to make a preliminary investigation into the current status of human rights and the rule of law in Bangladesh
  • to consider preliminary findings in the lights thereof, and
  • to establish contacts with human rights workers and NGOs, and in particular those representing the legal community in Bangladesh, with a view to fostering closer contact between persons of like interests in Bangladesh and Australia.
