Bangladesh used to be something different then now until this regime came into power
under a coalition 4 party alliance. Out of this four party alliance 2 of them are
Jamat-I-Islami and Islami Oikko Jote. These two radical islamist organization

YEAR 2004

Highlight: The Home Affairs Ministry controls the police and paramilitary forces,
which have primary responsibility for internal security. The army is responsible for
external security but also occasionally has been given domestic security
responsibilities. The Government created a new police unit, the Rapid Action
Battalion (RAB), composed of personnel from different law enforcement and security
agencies, including the military, to deal with violent criminals. The civilian
authorities maintained effective control of the security forces. The RAB and
security forces committed human rights abuses and were rarely disciplined, even for
egregious actions. Police were often reluctant to pursue investigations against
persons affiliated with the ruling party, and the Government frequently used the
police for political purposes. Members of the security forces committed numerous
serious human rights abuses.

Section 1 Respect for the Integrity of the Person, Including Freedom From:
a. Arbitrary or Unlawful Deprivation of Life
Security forces committed numerous politically motivated and extrajudicial killings.
The police, the BDR, and the RAB used unwarranted lethal force.
During the year, there were an increased number of killings by security personnel
(see Section 1.c.). Nearly all abuses went uninvestigated and unpunished. The
resulting climate of impunity remained a serious obstacle to ending abuse and
killings. In the few instances where charges were levied, punishment of those found
guilty was predominantly administrative. According to press reports, the RAB killed
79 persons during the year in an ongoing anticrime operation. There were also
reports of crossfire deaths at the hands of police. The deaths, all under unusual
circumstances, occurred while the accused were in custody and during police
operations; however, the Government described the deaths of some identified
criminals as occurring in crossfire between the RAB and crime gangs.
