Police Attack on Journalists

Police Attack on Journalists THE fact-finding report made by Bangladesh Human Rights Commission on the Press Club incident on June 21, 1992 has held the police fully responsible for the attack and torture of the journalists. Bangladesh Human Rights Commission believes that the law-enforcing agency has put press freedom under attack thereby vilating the constitutional rights as well as internationally recognised human rights. The commission has observed that this barbarous behaviour of the police, even under an elected government which has been existing since last year and half, clearly demonstrates that Bangladesh is still a police state, An extensive survey on the incident was conducted by two-member fact-finding mission composed of justice K M Subhan and Akram H Chowdhury, the chairman and the secretary-general of the commission respectively.
