Criminal Law

Bangladesh has a well-established criminal justice system that is governed by several laws, including the Bangladesh Penal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure, and the Evidence Act. The criminal law in Bangladesh covers a wide range of offenses, including murder, rape, theft, fraud, and drug-related crimes etc.

The legal system in Bangladesh follows the adversarial model, where the prosecution and the defense present their cases in front of a judge. In criminal cases, the burden of proof rests on the prosecution, and the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Bangladesh criminal law also includes provisions for punishment and rehabilitation of offenders. The penalties for criminal offenses range from fines and imprisonment to the death penalty in some cases.

In recent years, Bangladesh has made efforts to reform its criminal justice system, including the establishment of special tribunals for certain offenses and the implementation of alternative dispute resolution  (ADR) mechanisms.

Overall, the criminal law in Bangladesh is aimed at maintaining law and order and protecting the rights of its citizens. It is enforced by a variety of law enforcement agencies, including the police, judiciary, and correctional institutions.
