Bernicat: ‘ISIS-Bangladesh’ does not indicate existence of terrorist outfit here
US Ambassador to Dhaka Marcia Bernicat has said Washington's designation of 'ISIS-Bangladesh' as foreign terrorists does not indicate the existence of terrorist outfit Islamic State here. "It is not about saying that ISIS has a presence here. There are groups and individuals who have claimed their violent acts in the name of ISIS," she told reporters after attending a civil rights panel discussion at the EMK Center in Dhanmondi, Dhaka on Wednesday. On Tuesday, the US State Department announced the decision to designate seven ISIS-affiliated groups: ISIS-West Africa, ISIS-Somalia, ISIS-Egypt, ISIS-Bangladesh, ISIS-Philippines, the Maute Group, and Jund al-Khilafah-Tunisia.

It also named two ISIS-affiliated leaders: Mahad Moalim and Abu Musab al-Barnawi. Bernicat also said this designation was used to strengthen legal measures so that the government can investigate and prosecute people who are aiding and abetting terrorism.
