Human Rights: Bangladesh

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this House:

(1) notes the tremendous contributions of Australia's Bangladeshi community;

(2) shows concern at reports of human rights violations in Bangladesh, and claims that political activists and journalists are being targeted for persecution, abuse and physical violence; and

(3) encourages the Australian Government to engage with the Bangladeshi Government to progress democratic reform within that country.
