Innocent Brit two years after the massacre free

DHAKA – A British hostage who was held after the massacre in a restaurant in Dhaka, comes after two years back on free feet. The authorities in Bangladesh have concluded that Hasnat Karim had nothing to do with the drama in the Holey Artisan Bakery, where 22 people were killed in a hostage drama.

Karim celebrated the thirteenth birthday of his daughter in the Holey Artisan Bakery when terrorists there in 2016 invaded. That was the beginning of an approximately twelve hour gijzelingsactie. The authorities thought afterwards that the Brit suspicious behavior had shown. Witnesses had said that Karim was willing to be himself as a human shield to let you use.

The wife of Karim complained last year in an interview with The Guardian about the circumstances in which her husband was attached. He was in the prison on the floor to sleep, and struggled with medical problems. He also had no permission for the burial of his father to attend.

The lawyer of Karim said on Wednesday that the court has ordered his client’s release. There was ultimately no charges were filed.
