On Tuesday 28 November 2017 Channel 4 News reported on Michael Polak’s client, Mir Ahmad Bin Quasem, or Arman as he is known to friends and family. Arman is a Bangladeshi barrister, also called to the Bar of England and Wales, who was representing his father before the International Crimes Tribunal when on 9 August 2016 he was abducted by Bangladeshi security forces in front of his wife, two young daughters, and his sister. He has been held incommunicado since.
Michael is instructed by Arman’s family to fight for his release.
