His Excellency Professor Iajuddin Ahmed
President, People's Republic of Bangladesh
Chief Advisor, Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh
FREE THE COURTS OF BANGLADESH FROM
POLITICAL CONTROL NOW
The situation of human rights in Bangladesh is grave. Torture,
extrajudicial killing and other gross abuses have been extensively
documented and widely reported abroad.
However, the people of Bangladesh have no way to obtain redress for the
wrongs they have suffered. Nor can they stop future incidents. This is
because the lower judiciary of Bangladesh is under government
ministries. It is not independent.
Political control of the lower judiciary is the greatest obstacle to
the enjoyment of human rights in Bangladesh.
Successive governments have for years promised, both to the people of
Bangladesh and international organisations, to separate the judges from
the administration. The Supreme Court has also ordered it. Everyone
knows that government control of the courts is wrong. But still nothing
has been done about it. I fail to understand why.
There is no alternative: the judges of Bangladesh must be independent.
Enough time and promises have passed. I call for the courts to be
separated from the ministries without any more delay.
Please act now: for the sake of human rights and the rule of law, free
the courts of Bangladesh from political control. The lives and
liberties of the people of Bangladesh depend upon this.
