Women, children denied justice in Bangladesh


Supreme Court in Bangladesh says over 160,751 cases remain pending under the Prevention of Women and Children Repression Act with various courts across the country.

The rights groups say that every day, hundreds of women and children are denied justice due to the unusually long time it takes to dispose of these cases besides providing impunity to offenders.

Although cases of violence against women and children occur daily all across Bangladesh, few of them are reported, and even fewer win the legal battle to bring home justice.
