Sanctions on RAB won’t be lifted without concrete action: Peter Haas

Sanctions on RAB won’t be lifted without concrete action: Peter Haas

The United States imposed sanctions on RAB and its six current and former officials on the allegation of gross violation of human rights last December. Bangladesh has been requesting the US authorities lift the sanctions since then.

The US envoy, however, said that the RAB sanctions do not mean the two countries cannot enhance security cooperation.

“We will continue to work with Bangladesh to combat transnational crime and terrorism, enhance border security, and prevent violent extremism. We continue our support to Counterterrorism and Transnational Crime police, the Anti-Terrorism Unit, and the specialised units of the Metropolitan Police in Chattogram, Sylhet, and Rajshahi,” he added.
