Four people, including the acting director general of the Qatari media network Al azeezira, Mostafa Sovag, have been charged with sedition. The case will be heard in the court of Metropolitan Judge Ashek Imam on Wednesday.
Lawyer Mashiur Malek, executive president and founder of the Bangabandhu Foundation, filed the case as a plaintiff. According to the statement, the report, titled “All the Prime Minister’s People”, accuses Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the army chief of leaking false information. This is tantamount to rebellion.
Besides Mustafa Sovag, Tasnim Khalil, Sayer Zulkar Nain and David Bergman are also charged in the case.
