INFO NEEDED ON WIFE ABUSE IN BANGLADESH

I am writing on behalf of a group of Asian scholars who are
working with a progressive community based organization in
New York. One of our projects is aimed at helping a
Bangladeshi woman who is seeking asylum in the US. Her case
involves the fact that she is the second wife of a senior police
officer in Bangladesh and was subject to regular abuse. Her
lawyer is trying to prepare the case based on affidavits from
"experts" and "other written material testifying to the condition
of *"second (or multiple wives)"* in Bangladesh." (This whole
thing has to be framed in terms that all of us may not be very
happy with simply coz we are dealing with an `orientalist' US law and
order machinery). If any of you have access to any material that
could be helpful in a case such as this and/or know of any other
sources that I must check with, please do email me at:
mathew@enigma.rider.edu.

Thanx in advance
