Digital Security Act

US wants govt to consider changes, says Bernicat

UNB

The United States has encouraged the government of Bangladesh to consider changes to the recently passed Digital Security Act (DSA), reports UNB. The US thinks the changes in thelaw would bring it into conformity with the Bangladesh Constitution and with Bangladesh's international commitments on human, civil and political rights. "The United States shares the concerns of the international community that the recently passed Digital Security Act (DSA) could be used to suppress and criminalize free speech, all to the detriment of Bangladesh's democracy, development and prosperity," said US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia Bernicat in a statement yesterday. She said they welcome Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu’s offer to meet with media representatives to discuss their concerns about the DSA.
