Bangladesh Landless Movement demands formation of commission for independent and impartial investigation into the disappearance

The Bangladesh Landless Movement demanded the formation of a commission for independent and impartial investigation into the mysteries of disappearances in the country and called on the government to sign an anti-disappearance charter.

Iqbal Amin, advisor to the Bangladesh Landless Movement Central Committee, Saidur Rahman Lutfar, president of the Central Committee and Sheikh Nasir Uddin, general secretary, made the demand on Monday.

They said the government’s positive attitude in signing the anti-disappearance charter demanded time. While the UN-declared International Day for the Prevention of Disappearances is being observed for missing persons around the world, some of those who went missing in Bangladesh have returned, but most are still missing. Although allegations of disappearances have surfaced against law enforcement agencies in Bangladesh, these allegations have been repeatedly denied by these forces and the government. Instead, the government claims that law enforcement is continuing to try to find the missing.
