Title Bangladesh: 1. Please give a brief update on the situation for Chakmas in Bangladesh, in particular: (a) communities in the Chittagong Hills Tract (CHT); and (b) Chakmas living elsewhere (eg. Dhaka, Gazipur). 2. Please provide brief snapshots of the Hills Women's Federation, Pahari Chhatra Parishad (PCP), and the Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samiti (PCJSS); their missions, relationship with one another and whether members are known to be at risk of mistreatment. 3. Do reports indicate whether the Bangladeshi Army or others target people involved in political debate or pro-Jumma activism outside the CHT? 4. Is the Bangladeshi Army known to arrest those who assist the CHT Commission during its visits to CHT locations? (The CHT Commission's views, and in particular, any comment on their August 2009 visit to Kamalchari, would be particularly useful.)
