News reaches me from Bangladesh that the British government may have written to the Bangladesh foreign ministry asserting that there are no war criminals from the "">Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971 resident in Britain. If true, this is a catastrophic error of judgement. For the UK to
pre-judge the present
war crimes trials taking place in Bangladesh
would be a moral outrage. If we have suspects living in this country then we need to fulfil our international obligations. I have approached the foreign office for more information, but hope the
rumours are wrong.
