Bangladesh: Muzzling dissent online
The Digital Security Act of Bangladesh, passed on 8 October 2018, is even more restrictive than the Information and Communication Technology Act it replaces. The new Act is deeply problematic for three major reasons: ambiguous formulation of multiple sections that are vague that they may lead to criminalizing of legitimate expression of opinions or thoughts; broad powers granted to authorities which are not clearly defined; and provisions which allow for removal or blocking of content and the seizure/ search of devices without sufficient safeguards.
