Donal Lu praises low extrajudicial killings in Bangladesh last year

US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affair Donal Lu has praised the Bangladesh government for the dramatic reduction last year in the number of allegations of extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances by the RAB.

“We applaud the Government of Bangladesh's efforts in these continued reforms and encourage the Bangladesh government to conduct independent investigations of alleged extrajudicial killings.”

During his meetings in Dhaka, Assistant Secretary Lu did not indicate a time frame for the removal of RAB sanctions, said US Embassy Spokesperson US Jeff Ridenour 

in response of media queries in Dhaka on Tuesday ( Jan 17).
