Digital Security Bill turns into law

Digital Security Bill turns into law

President Md. Abdul Hamid has assented to the much-talked-about Digital Security Bill passed in the 22nd session of the current parliament, making it a law, local media reports said on Monday (Oct 8) citing President's Press Secretary Joynal Abedin. 

The 22nd session of the 10th parliament, which was prorogued on Sep 20, passed a total of 18 bills, including the Digital Security Bill 2018 and Road Transport Bill 2018. 

Amid concerns from different quarters, the 'Digital Security Bill, 2018' was passed in the Parliament on Sep 19 to deal with cyber crimes, including hurting the religious sentiment, negative propaganda against the Liberation War, and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib, and illegal activities in e-transactions, and spreading defamatory data.
