Nine ambassadors of the European Union have expressed concern over the recent abductions and killings in the country.

“We have expressed our concern to the government about this question two weeks ago. We called for investigations to take place in all cases and we were told that it would be done and people would be brought to justice,” EU Ambassador William Hanna said at a press briefing on Europe Day at a city hotel on Thursday.

He was flanked by eight other ambassadors of European Unions.

Hanna declined to make any comment about the EU stand on the reformation of RAB

About the meeting with BNP on Wednesday, he said the political party expressed their concern over the recent deterioration of the law and order situation in the country.

“Yesterday they were telling us about their concern about the abductions,” Hanna said.

When asked about the EU stand on the reformation of RAB, he said he would not make any comment on any institution in the country.

“I would simply say that it is very important that justice should prevail,” he added.

A number of abduction and killing incidents took place in different areas of the country since last couple of weeks.

On April 27, seven persons were kidnapped from Narayanganj and later they were found dead in the Sitalakhya River.
