Choudhury farce continues

Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury was back in court yesterday for what was hoped to be the last time. Not so.

Bangladeshi journalist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury returned to a Dhaka courtroom today. In the weeks leading up to it, the new government of Bangladesh had given private assurances to individuals and officials from various governments that it would drop the admittedly false charges against Mr. Choudhury. It did not. Not only did the court set a new trial date of July 18th , but more ominously, the new Public Prosecutor stated his willingness to proceed with this action.
