Sanctions on Rab
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday came down heavily on the USA for imposing sanctions on RAB and some of its officials said that this has been an abominable move.

“I think imposing sanctions on RAB and some of its officials after all these successes containing militancy, drugs, pirates, and terrorists is very much an abominable act,” she said.

The prime minister was speaking at the 18th founding anniversary of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) at Shaheed Lt Col Azad Memorial Hall of Rab Forces Headquarters. The PM joined it from her official residence Ganobhaban.

She said that Bangladesh has the provision of punishment if a member of a law enforcement agency gets involved in any kind of crime.

"But it's a matter of regret that they imposed sanctions on some Rab members without any fault or cause. In their country they do not take any action against any member of their forces for their criminal activities," she said.

She said Bangladesh is the only one in the whole world where anyone from the law enforcement agencies involved in any crime must be punished.

"It is very much regretful that those who attain successes in conducting drives against various types of criminals including militants, drugs, pirates, and terrorists got the sanctions," she said.
