The court returned the sedition case against four people involved in a report on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Army Chief General Aziz Ahmed in the Qatar-based news outlet Al Jazeera titled ‘All the Prime Minister’s Men’. As a result, no further case is being filed in the light of this application.
Mashiur Malek, executive president of the Bangabandhu Foundation, which filed the case, said the court had said that the government’s approval was required to file a sedition case. But in this case, the application was rejected due to lack of government approval.
Earlier on February 17, Mashiur Malek filed the case in the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court. In the petition, he alleged that there was a conspiracy against the state and the government by publishing a report on the activities of the Bangladesh Army chief and his brothers on Al-Jazeera.
The accused in the petition are British journalist David Bergman, Swedish expatriate journalist Tasnim Khalil, Hungarian expatriate Bangladeshi Zulkarnain Sami and Al Jazeera Director General and Editor-in-Chief Mostafa Soyag. Source: BBC Bangla.
