Motion text

That this House notes with alarm the worsening human rights situation in Bangladesh, including extrajudicial killings, disappearance of political activists and opposition members, the lack of an independent judiciary, and high levels of violence against women; further notes the 2013 World Report by Human Rights Watch, which says that Bangladesh's overall human rights situation worsened in 2012, as the government narrowed political and civil society space, shielded abusive security forces from accountability, and ignored calls to reform laws and procedures in flawed war crimes and mutiny trials; condemns human rights violations of all kinds, wherever they occur; and calls on the Government to put pressure on the Bangladeshi government to take urgent steps to end these human rights violations.
