Triumph Over Terror Series
In the Name of Safety

False imprisonment violates due process in Bangladesh.

A printer-friendly version of this page 23 minutes
Directed by Catherine and Tareque Masud
Produced by Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK) with TVE
Produced in association with the Commission of the European Communities and WITNESS

Bangladeshi prisons are home to thousands of innocent people, jailed - the authorities claim - for their own protection. The vast majority of them are women and children, many rescued by the police from drug trafficking rings. Others are simply lost children whose families the police don't bother to trace. Some of the women are victims of domestic violence and rape; others are young girls picked up by the police on suspicion. Men and women are incarcerated merely for marrying against their parents' will. All of them are helpless.

In the name of safety, Bangladeshi authorities are locking people up in blatant violation of the rights of due process enshrined in the Universal Declaration.

Other titles in the series are:

Where Truth Lies - A dramatic case before the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Going Home - 10-year old soldier escapes rebel forces in Sierra Leone.

Till Death Do Us Part - Widows are denied inheritance and property rights in Nigeria.

Smiles: The Hypocrisy of Thai Politics - The struggle for greater democracy and free speech in Thailand.

Discipline with Dignity - The attempt to end corporal punishment in Nepalese schools.
