Mr. Asaduzzaman Khan, MP
Ministry of Home Affairs
Bangladesh Secretariat


Nearly 400 migrant workers

Honourable Minister Khan,

I am gravely concerned by the repeated arrests of returning migrant workers in Bangladesh. I urge your government to:

Either immediately charge each of the workers with a recognizable criminal offence under Bangladeshi law whilst ensuring the necessary due process or release them in line with your government’s obligations under international human rights law.

Yours sincerely,
