This petition made change with 859 supporters!
I have started this petition for the safe return of my uncle on behalf of his family. I want people to support this petition as my uncle is innocent and a British citizen being held in a foreign country. We are concerned that he will not be given a fair trial and that his human rights may be violated. We also fear he may be tortured. We would like the British government to investigate this and assist in the release of him. My uncle is a family man and has helped many people in Sheffield. He was in Bangladesh trying to rectify an injustice against himself and other investors.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND ASK OTHERS TO DO SO FOR MOJID, FOR HIS WIFE AND 2 CHILDREN AND FOR THE REST OF HIS FAMILY THAT ARE SUFFERING ALONG SIDE HIM.
I just want my uncle back home with us all.
The Sheffield Star has tried to enrol the Bangladesh high commission based in this country to assist us, HE HAS BEEN IN PRISON FOR OVER A MONTH AND WE ARE YET TO RECEIVE A REPLY! You would expect that they would be the organisation best placed to assist with this.
Below is an extract from the Sheffield Star.
A Sheffield community leader has been imprisoned in Bangladesh along with two other British citizens in connection with a luxury five-star hotel he invested in. The family of Sheffield Bangladesh Citizens’ Neighbourhood Welfare Project
chairman Mojid Khan made an emotional appeal for his safe return they fear he may be tortured in prison, with Amnesty International warning torture in Bangladesh is “extremely widespread”. They are asking the British government to investigate as they fear Mr Khan, from Darnall, will not get a fair trial.
The father-of-two, who runs Sunrise Foods wholesalers in Sheffield was among 120 British Bangladeshis who invested in the building of the Dhaka Regency Hotel in Bangladesh.
Mr Khan had been travelling frequently to Bangladesh with other investors concerned they were not receiving money back from their investment. He last travelled to Bangladesh as legal proceedings took place against the hotel directors. He was arrested following allegations made by one of the hotel’s directors.
