Update : 02 Apr 2023, 09:43 PM

The Bangladesh Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) has condemned the release of an alleged anti-state conspiratorial report in the Daily Prothom Alo on Independence Day.

The association made the condemnation in a media release signed by Supreme Court Bar Association President Md Momtazuddin Fakir and Secretary Md Abdun Noor Dular on Sunday.

"We strongly condemn the misleading report that Prothom Alo and its correspondent published on Independence Day. Freedom of expression also has a limit. Lying is not freedom of expression," the release added.

“Free speech does not include mocking independence and the liberation war. A complex conspiracy against Bangladesh is behind such a bogus story,” the statement added.

“We hope that the government will take appropriate legal measures in this regard. No one is above the law, not even journalists. Let the law take its own pace”, it also said.
