Binay Krishno Mallick
Binay Krishno Mallick is a human rights defender who works on a wide range of issues including anti-corruption and anti-trafficking in Bangladesh. He is the Executive Director of Rights Jessore, a well-known human rights organisation dedicated to preventing human trafficking and providing support to its victims. The organisation is very vocal on human rights issues and its members have repeatedly faced issues with the administration, local police and recruiting agencies. In April 2016, a local police station in Jessore blacklisted Binay Krishno Mallick and displayed a photo of him claiming that he was a human trafficker and money launderer, after his organisation arranged a press conference on behalf of victims of land grabbing.
