Bangladesh: The High raking government officials including theMinister

The high ranking government officials, including the ministers and even the Prime Minister, deny all the allegations of disappearance, defending the law-enforcing agents. The Government also constantly denies the demands for credible investigation of the allegations of enforced disappearance. Whenever local and international human rights groups have demands that a high profile judicial probe commission headed by a Supreme Court judge be formed, the government routinely ignores the demands and simultaneously blames "professional criminals" for the crimes. Now, disappearance continues while the notion of justice to the families of the disappeared is also vanishing in Bangladesh. Practically, the families of the disappeared victims have few things actually guaranteed by the state: generic denial of the allegations of disappearance, constant threats and intimidations, refusal to register complaints of disappearance, and absence of justice.
