Bangladesh govt must look into Chattogram customs

17 Mar 2020  |  medium.com
The article by Adnan Akib highlights the financial mismanagement and irregularities at Customs House Chattogram, Bangladesh. It discusses how the agency neglected its duty to monitor the outer anchorage of Chattogram port for nine years, leading to a waste of Tk 5 crore on repairing patrol boats that never became operational. The article raises concerns about the lack of accountability within government agencies, particularly the National Board of Revenue (NBR), which oversees Bangladesh Customs. The author emphasizes the risks posed by unchecked smuggling and other criminal activities due to the customs' failure to inspect vessels. The article calls for immediate government action to address these issues and hold officials responsible for the oversight accountable.

Trafficking victims detained in India as illegal Bangladeshis

21 Aug 2017  |  Dhaka Tribune
The article discusses the ongoing issue of Bangladeshi victims of human trafficking being detained in India under the Foreigners Act, without proper distinction between victims and traffickers. This practice contradicts a 2012 advisory from the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs, which mandates a victim-centric approach and different treatment for victims. Instances include a 10-year-old boy and four women who were arrested and remain in detention. The Banglar Manabadhikar Suraksha Mancha (MASUM) and the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) have highlighted these cases, calling for investigations and adherence to international law to prevent unlawful detention and ensure repatriation of the victims.
