Waiting for 13 years

Aug 22, 2017
Countless horrific stories have emerged from the ashes of the attack
 
After 13 long years, justice still eludes the perpetrators of the heinous August 21 grenade attack.
 
The attack, the intended target of which was Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, was responsible for injuring hundreds others, and took the lives of 18 more.
 
Countless horrific stories have emerged from the ashes of the attack. These stories carry the scars of the immeasurable suffering of those who were the victims.
 
But, despite that, justice continues to drag its feet in these cases.
 
It is high time our judiciary sped up the process, and sent a strong message to all militants out there.
 
And the victims of the attack who have waited 14 years — they deserve closure. They should not have to wait any longer.
