Bangladesh – Violence following the sentencing to death of Delwar Hossain Sayedee (March 5, 2013)


France notes with concern and dismay the violence that took place following the handing down of the sentence to Mr. Sayedee, a leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami party.

It urges the various parties to demonstrate calm and restraint, and to resort to peaceful means of expression in order to put an end to this violence, for which there can be no justification in a state governed by the rule of law.
