The Al Jazeera report levelled various allegations against Bangladesh Army chief General Aziz Ahmed and his brothers, which went viral on social media

A special tribunal on Tuesday set March 10 for submitting the report of further investigation into a case lodged under Digital Security Act (DSA) against 11 people, including Zulkarnain Shayer Khan alias Sami, who appeared in an allegedly false and politically motivated documentary, aired by Al Jazeera recently.

Judge As Shams Jaglul Hossain of Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal passed the order as investigation agency Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crimes (CTTC) unit failed to submit the report on Tuesday.

Earlier on February 10, the tribunal ordered CTTC to further investigate the case and submit the report on Tuesday.

The court had come up with the order, allowing a prosecution plea to further investigate the case. The prosecution on February 9 also filed a no-confidence petition against the charge-sheet for dropping names of eight accused including Sami.

‘Smear campaign’

The Al Jazeera report, which aired on February 1, levelled various allegations against Bangladesh Army chief General Aziz Ahmed and his brothers, which went viral on social media.

On February 16, General Aziz told reporters that the allegations were false, concocted and part of a conspiracy hatched by vested groups.

Earlier, the Bangladesh government rejected the desperate “smear campaign” instigated by extremists and their allies, working from London and elsewhere through the report.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen also hinted at taking legal steps against Al Jazeera for spreading misinformation through broadcasting its “false and fabricated” report against Bangladesh.
