Justice has been upheld

Aug 23, 2017
Not only are the families of the victims getting the closure they deserve, a very strong message is being sent
 
We applaud the High Court verdict upholding death sentences for 15 people, including high-ranking RAB officials, over the Narayanganj seven-murder case.
 
The gruesome details of the seven-murder case sent shockwaves throughout the nation after seven bodies were found floating in the Shitalakkhya River three days after being abducted.
 
With this High Court verdict, not only are the families of the victims getting the closure they deserve, but a very strong message is being sent as well.
 
No one, not even high-ranking members of elite law enforcement agencies, is above the law.
 
Perpetrators of such heinous crimes should never go free, regardless of their level of influence in the law enforcement community.
 
The public puts faith in law enforcement to protect them, and the Narayanganj murders were the worst kind of violation of that sacred trust.
 
Our judicial system has now restored some of that trust, closing the chapter on a most scandalous crime.
