Govt rejects RAB disbanding call

We will take the decision on RAB considering our context, says Amu


The government has rejected the call made by the Human Rights Watch, an international human rights organisation, to dissolve Rapid Action Battalion (RAB).

The cabinet committee on law and order situation led by Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu held a meeting over the issue at the secretariat on Monday.

Amu strongly criticised the rights watch’s call to disband RAB while talking to journalists after the meeting .

Amu said: “It’s our internal matter. They cannot request us to dissolve the elite force. We will not take the decision considering their request. We will take the decision considering our context.”

The Human Rights Watch on Monday gave a letter to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina requesting to dissolve RAB, the elite force of the country.

Regarding the threat of BNP to hold strong movements to oust the present government after Eid, Amu said: “It’s not an issue to discuss in the meeting of the cabinet committee. We are not apprehending that they could do it.”

“We are observing the situation. If we see they are creating any form of anarchy or violence in the name of movement, we will take decisions by calling emergency meetings. But, we hope they would not be able to do it,” he added.

  1. Once again Amu has opened his mouth for the misrule of his party. AL has disrupted all institutions including the Armed forces, the police, the civil service, the Judicial branch. Literally they have destroyed all organs of the public administration and the civil society. It is about time to pack them out to India or other foreign countries. AL does not belong to Bangladesh.
