Govt identifying property of Bangabandhu’s killers, razakars: PM
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said the government is identifying the movable and immovable property of Bangabandhu's killers, convicted war criminals and razakars, in their names or others names, as part of its move to confiscate those.
"Apart from identifying their wealth, the process to confiscate those is on," she said.
The Prime Minister said this while responding to a question from Selina Begum (Woman Seat-6) during the PM's question-answer session in parliament.
She said the killers of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, those who committed crimes against humanity, convicted war criminals and razakars, who were involved in the killing of 30 lakh people during the Liberation War, have no scope to have property in an independent country.
"They have no right to have those," she said.
Replying to another question from M Ayan Uddin (Rajshahi-3), the Prime Minister said Bangladesh always wants a sustainable and just solution to the Rohingya problem maintaining friendly bilateral relations with Myanmar.
Besides, she said, the government has taken multilateral initiatives to put international pressure on the Myanmar government.
Talking about the agreement with the Myanmar government to repatriate the Rohingyas, she said any repatriation process is complex and lengthy. "In just four months, we've signed three agreements with Myanmar to repatriate the Rohingyas," she said.
Hasina mentioned that the preparation is on for repatriation of the Rohingyas to their homeland.
"On completion of all the preparations, it'll be possible to start the repatriation soon," she hoped.
