Bangladesh: Feedback on proposed ‘Data Protection Act, 2022’ of Bangladesh

In this Letter to the Government of Bangladesh, Amnesty International responds to the government’s call for feedback on the proposed “Data Protection Act, 2022”.

In line with Bangladesh’s international human rights obligations, Amnesty International believes that the law requires significant amendments to some of the sections to bring it in line with international human rights guarantees.
