Law Minister Anisul Huq assured that the government will take necessary steps to ensure that no journalists will fall victim of harassment in case filed under Section 57 of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Act without any wrongdoing.
He made the remark to reporters after a meeting on the new draft law of ‘Digital Security Act’ at secretariat on Sunday (July 9).
Moreover, there has been a lot of speculation recently about whether the much-talked-about Section 57 of ICT Act will be included in the newly formulated Digital Security Act. The minister said the decision will be finalized in August.
State Minister for Post and Telecommunications Tarana Halim and State Minister for ICT Junaid Ahmed Palak were also present at the time.
