The attached article states that the 1972 adoption law of Bangladesh was repealed in 1982 but that the Bangladeshi government was considering the reintroduction of that law in 1991 (29 June 1991). The article does not state whether or not this law was reintroduced.
This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
