Army probe wanted to quiz Hasina

Star Report

A military inquiry committee wanted to interrogate Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina after the BDR mutiny in 2009, a proposal that annoyed the premier who outright rejected it.

Hasina disclosed the matter to the then US ambassador to Dhaka James F Moriarty during a meeting on April 27 that year, reveals a US diplomatic cable published by the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks on August 30 this year.

Following the gruesome murder of 57 army officers and 17 civilians by the BDR rebels at Pilkhana headquarters on February 25, 2009, the army on March 2 formed a 20-member probe committee. Led by Lt Gen Jahangir Alam Chowdhury, the committee acted separately from the government one to probe the two-day mayhem.

"Hasina expressed exasperation at a separate army probe that initially was to be limited to strictly military issues such as accounting for arms and ammunition lost during the mutiny," the cable said quoting the meeting with the prime minister.

"She related with evident anger how military investigators had sent a letter to the Ministry of Home Affairs demanding to question senior government officials, including the Prime Minister herself. She said she had rejected the request, noting such interviews were the responsibility of the police investigators."

In the same meeting with the US ambassador, Sheikh Hasina claimed that security personnel were also forcing the detained BDR men to make statements “implicating government officials from her Awami League” in the mutiny.

Hasina and Moriarty also spoke on strengthening civil-military relationship.

The ambassador gave Hasina a read-out of the Pacific Area Special Operations Conference in Hawaii he had attended along with the then Bangladesh state minister for home Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj.

Moriarty said they had visited the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies, which wanted to facilitate a workshop on civilian-military relations for the Bangladesh government, military and political leaders.

The PM voiced support for the proposal, the cable said.

Hassina...wake up and cleanse Bangla of the Islamic VD that has affected it. There are many sympathizers still out there. Find them and shoot twice to the back of the head....

It appears that the Bangaldesh military is quite powerful.

In other countries, the Army is subordinate to the democratically elected Govt and cannot call a PM or any functionary.

Even a civilian cannot be called for their Inquiries unless ordered to do so by a Civil Court.

That is true about their power. In fact, the relations between Hasina and the army hasn't always been that great. I can safely say that Hasina has very little control over the military. Especially after Pilkhana, she just lost it.

Those two women are weak and stupid. I was frankly surprised that the witch didn't get her head blown off.

How is the issue of Muslim nutjobs related to the topic?

Bangladesh has been combating terrorists in its own back yard for a long time.

That was Israel's police. Not army. Generally speaking, an army cannot do the things they tried to do.

But, what to do for Bangladesh with the pathetic police force we have?

But then, Farhaan's assessment is sound. Seems like everyone is on the run for money in Bangladesh. Even fish traders! Wonder what's the hurry.

The Israeli President had done a civil crime and so he was questioned.

But is Israel the benchmark for Bangladeshis?

Clinton was answerable to a Senate hearing.

And lastly, good to know that you support the idea that the military is NOT subordinate to the democratic elected govt.

Some democracy!!

Questions were raised as to the activities of the PM and her close associates during the entire day of BDR mutiny. A day will come when many of the secrets will be revealed to the public. Many have already concluded that AL leaders were involved in murdering the military officers. While they were murdered, SH was sipping tea with the BDR mutiny leaders in her office.
