Choudhury trial - no witnesses

My inadequate news gathering has been shown up once again. Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury did indeed go on trial on January 22, but things turned out rather differently to what his persecutors had planned.

When Choudhury’s trial resumed on January 22, the government witnesses against him failed to show forcing a postponement until February 28. Based on this and other information, Choudhury and Benkin are urging their supporters to flood the new government with letters, faxes, and emails about the case.
There are big things happening in Bangladesh at the moment. Richard L. Benkin, who has been leading the campaign to save Choudhury, visited the country for 10 days earlier this month, and gives a summary of what has happened.
