Bangladesh | Guernica 37

Guernica 37 has been involved in many legal matters in Bangladesh.

Amongst others, by:  


  • providing legal advice and representation to political leaders prosecuted by the International Crimes Tribunal of Bangladesh (ICTB).


  • drafting and submitting several communications to the United Nations Special Procedures Branch on enforced disappearances, arbitrary detention, summary or extrajudicial killings and the independence of judges and lawyers.


  • filling communication to the International Criminal Court regarding international crimes committed in Bangladesh under the current government.


  • drafting book chapters, articles and legal reports on the theory and practice of the ICTB.


  • being part of the team instructed to represent Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, an opposition political party, members of which have been tried before the ICTB, for which Toby Cadman, co-founder of Guernica 37 International Justice Chambers, has acted as a defence counsel.
