The politician is now facing 12 cases over slandering a journalist on TV

Two cases have been filed against former caretaker government adviser Barrister Mainul Hossain under the Digital Security Act, chalking up the number of recent cases against him to 12.

One of the two cases was filed on Wednesday at Dhaka’s Cyber Tribunal by Awami League leader Sumona Akhter Lily.

She told Bangla Tribune that the case was filed under sections 25(2) and 29 of the law.

Under fire for calling journalist Masuda Bhatti "characterless" on live TV, Mainul is facing a slew of defamation cases.

He is now in Dhaka Central Jail after being arrested on Monday night in one of those cases filed in Rangpur.

A second case was filed by Netrokona Mohila Awami League's President Kamrunnesa Ashraf Dina with the Netrokona Senior Judicial Magistrate Court 1.

The plaintiff's lawyer Monowar Parvez said the case has been filed under Section 29 (1) of the Digital Security Act. The court has taken the case into cognizance, he said.

Section 29 of the act concerns the publishing of information with the intent to defame someone.

In Rajbari, a defamation case worth Tk1 crore was filed by Mohila Awami League Boalia Union unit Convener Saleha begum.

The court of Rajbari Senior Judicial Magistrate Laboni Akter issued an arrest warrant against Mainul after accepting the case.
