Bangladesh- Killing of civil society members (23-25 April 2016)

The French Ambassador in a statement condemns the recent killings in Bangladesh

France condemns the murders of Professor Rezaul Karim Siddique 23rd April, Hindu priest Paramananda Roy 24th April, and two LGBT rights defenders, Xulhaz Rahman and Mahbub Tonoy, 25th April 2016.

These outrageous killings come in addition to series of murders, most of them claimed by Islamic State, occurring in Bangladesh these last months against civil society members, rights defenders and representatives of religious minorities.

France conveys its condolences to the families and friends of the victims and stands aside Bangladesh in its fight against terrorism. The culprits must be brought to justice.
