US urges govt to reform Digital Security Act

Probashbangla24 Desk : The United States has encouraged the government of Bangladesh to reform the recently passed Digital Security Act (DSA), saying it has provisions to hamper free speech.

UN ambassador to Bangladesh, Marcia Bernicat made a statement on Sunday to urge the government to make changes in the law which 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 the statement.

She added that the US welcomes Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu’s offer to meet with media representatives to discuss their concerns about the DSA.
