Press Release Regarding The Execution Of The Death Sentences In Bangladesh

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 22.11.2015

No: 292, 22 November 2015

We have learned with sadness that the death sentences given to Ali Ahsan Muhammad Mujaheed, Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Party, and Salauddin Quader Chowdhury, former MP from Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and former Minister, by the Bangladesh International Crimes Tribunal have been carried out.

It is a cause of concern that although they had apologized from the President by using their legal rights, their wishes have been rejected and that the practice of capital punishment is still being continued.

As a country having abolished the death sentence, Turkey maintains its belief that the injuries of the past cannot be healed through such methods. We consider that there is a need also in the brotherly country Bangladesh for another method to replace as soon as possible capital punishment, which would better serve the purposes of social reconciliation.
