Action taken on video about expulsion of girl students

MOI:

With reference to a video in circulation featuring a group of people talking about the expulsion of girl students from a school for selling prescription medicine Lyrica, the General Directorate of Anti-corruption and Economic & Electronic Security has taken action and summoned everyone involved in the case. The department said it had not received any report about the case earlier.

The statements of those in the video have been taken and the investigation will continue. The directorate said that no one was above the law which was applicable to everyone without exception.

The department will keep the public informed with the updates and the latest information about the case. People are urged not to circulate false information that might be defamatory to any of those involved in the case.

Article 364 of the Penal Code states that: “A person would be jailed for up to two years or fined up to BD200 if he, by any means of publication, accuses another person of having acted in a certain way that renders him liable to a penalty or subject to contempt. The punishment shall be imprisonment and/ or a fine if the libel is committed against a public servant during, or because of, or by reason of him discharging his duties, or if such libel affects his honour or brings disrepute to his family or if it is understood that it was done to achieve an illegal objective. If the libel occurs through printing in a newspaper or publication, it shall be deemed an aggravating circumstance.”

The directorate said that circulating any report without verifying the truth was a punishable offence since it disturbed public order and was defamatory, especially if the case involved children. It is important to seek information only from reliable sources it said.
