Weltfrauen organisieren innerhalb kürzester Zeit internationale Solidarität mit Joly Talukder und sieben weiteren Gefangenen.
Mitteilung der kommunistischen Partei Bangladesh zu den Verhaftungen, was am 1. April geschah:
This is to inform you that Jolly, the general secretary of Bangladesh Garments Workers Trade Union Centre and other seven leaders of the same organization has been arrested and sent to jail today, 1 April 2018. Few months back regarding trade union movement on some genuine demands of the workers in a particular factory the employers association instituted a false case against the leaders of BGWTUC. The so called accused leaders went to High Court for advance bail in connection with that case. However, High Court granted them bail for four months and asked them to appear before the appropriate Lower Court. It’s a normal practice that when High Court gives a bail, the Lower Court also gives bail. According to the direction of the High Court Jolly and other leaders (so called accused) appeared before the Lower Court today. However, Lower Court refused to give them bail and sent them to jail. This is unusual. It has been done by the influence of towners association.
We shall again try to go to High Court and ask for bail. We are not sure what High Court will do this time. The process of going to High Court will take some time. In the meantime the leaders will remain in jail.
