    In Bangladesh, corruption and a backlog in the justice system are forcing people in villages to use local courts to settle their disputes. They are legal and chaired by an elected member of the village but none of them have formal legal training and some don't even know how to read and write. This can often be difficult for the women who come to seek justice and arbitration. Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Khadimanagar, Bangladesh.
