Bangladesh : Bangladesh Society for the Enforcement of Human Rights and Ors v Government of Bangladesh and Ors, [2000]

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Supreme Court of Bangladesh ruled in favor of sex workers and ordered the government to clean up its police force, which had problems with corruption. The police had violently evicted sex workers from their homes in the middle of the night, raising issues of unreasonable search and seizure. The Court encouraged the government to adopt a Code of Conduct for the police immediately, modeled on the Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Agencies, which had been adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
