Bangladesh: Habeas corpus writs is denied and ignored


  Thus, habeas corpus writs, and the justice they are designed to provide the affected families, is denied and ignored. It is important to note that very few people can afford the high expenditure of seeking remedies in the High Court Division due to excessive fees for lawyers and entrenched bribery at every step within the judicial institution, from filing a petition to collecting the Court's order. The justice-seekers become utterly frustrated and annoyed by the judicial process, which only offers harassment at very high costs in terms of money, energy, time, and further threats as a consequence of seeking justice for a crime committed by the state agents.
