Joint submission to the Committee Against Torture on Bangladesh
Harm Reduction International and the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty submitted evidence to the Committee Against Torture for its 67th session to consider Bangladesh’s compliance with the Convention Against Torture in its 67th Session, despite not having received the initial state party report.
With this submission, Harm Reduction International and WCADP wish to highlight some of the human rights violations relevant to the Committee’s mandate which have been committed in the context of drug control in Bangladesh. In particular, this submission will focus on gross human rights violations committed by law enforcement agencies, the death penalty for drug offences, conditions of detention, access to health services, and ill-treatment in private rehabilitation centres.
