      Press Release

      1 June 2007

      The Advisor on Foreign and CHT Affairs Dr. Iftekhar Ahmed
      Chowdhury of the current interim government of Bangladesh
      called a meeting with the Advisory Committee on CHT Affairs
      Ministry on 31 May in Dhaka for discussion on CHT affairs
      with special reference to some crucial provisions of the
      1997 'CHT Peace Treaty' that remained unimplemented during
      the terms of the two previous governments. Such provisions
      include, among others, delegation of power to the local
      government, land right of the local people and withdrawal
      of 'temporary' military camps from the CHT.

      The Advisory Committee consists of the Chairman CHT
      Regional Council Jyotirindra Bodhipriyo Larma, Chairmen of
      three Hill District Councils, Chiefs of three Circles and
      three members of the non-indigenous (Bengali) permanent
      residents of the CHT.

      Peace Campaign Group welcomes the move and requests the
      current administration of Bangladesh to solve the
      long-standing problems rather than making it a mere
      diplomatic exercise to show to the international community.

      PCG also urges the government to release the PCJSS and
      other indigenous leaders arrested by the Joint Forces under
      the emergency rule in place in the country by framing false
      charges against them as a mark of its good-will towards
      this direction.
