UN Rapporteurs Concerned over Harassment of Rights Groups in Bangladesh

Angelita Baeyens, our VP of International Advocacy & Litigation, speaks with Voice of America about the harassment and intimidation of two well-known human rights groups in Bangladesh.

She notes, “The persecution and criminalization of Odhikar executives, one of the most prestigious human rights organizations in the country, shows an intentional effort by the government to silence those that expose the grave abuses instead of addressing the underlying causes.”
