UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay said Wednesday the trials ”failed to meet the most fundamental standards of due process.”
A Bangladesh court sentenced 152 guards to death Tuesday for a 2009 mutiny.
The sentences followed a mass trial involving 846 defendants — a process criticized by Human Rights Watch, which said it was not credible and that at least 47 suspects died in custody.
The border guards said they revolted over salary demands; assignments on UN peacekeeping missions, which come with generous perks; and better facilities.
