We support the restoration of full democratic processes in Bangladesh at the earliest opportunity. We believe that the lifting of the ban on indoor political activities was an important step towards this. We would like to see a dialogue between the caretaker Government and the political parties that includes discussion of further moves towards lifting the remaining restrictions.
