Bangladesh & All the Prime Minister’s Men | Al Jazeera Investigations
An explosive investigation reveals how a criminal gang is colluding with the security forces of Bangladesh and has links to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Undercover reporters with the I-Unit expose how a former street mafia claims to have captured a state. The brother of Bangladesh’s army chief boasts that he can use police and paramilitary units to abduct rivals and earn millions in bribes.
Documents obtained by the I-Unit also show that head of the army has helped a convicted killer evade justice. And how the country’s military intelligence service has secretly bought spyware from Israel – a country that Bangladesh does not recognise – that can monitor the prime minister’s political rivals.
The I-Unit invited all those involved in this investigation to respond to our findings. They included Bangladesh’s Prime Minister, Home Minister, Inspector General, Police Commissioner and all four Ahmed Brothers.
