our. justice administrator and the. immigration police in the air force that is not question about that but you will also have to understand that these people had acquired different pass. which unless it was known to the government unless that was on the watch this it is quite easy for them to have slipped in along with thousands of other people who come in and wow i am not running for one moment suggesting that this has not been a failing of the government it or has done a lot differently. than to raise it in a democracy with the kind of free press that you've claimed exists in bangladesh all these allegations from al-jazeera would be plastered over the newspapers in the broadcast media but and of a something that the dhaka tribune sought to explain when they wrote to its readers
1:46 am
the reason for our silence it said is simple the current state of media and defamation law makes it unwise for any bangladeshi media house to venture into any kind of meaningful comment on the controversy that's it isn't that you have cowed the media into submission and muzzled it says become afraid of a time shadow are you proud of that. if if it were. true as you say i would be ashamed of it but let me tell you what the truth is yes are you saying the paper is lying or are you saying the newspapers lying. let me not. yet and let me give you the explanations in this there is a thing called digital security act it is to prevent. violent
1:47 am
room 1st. and inciting of people through the. 2 digital platform this law unfortunately. our government inherited was the i think the act was passed in 1906 our government devised it and it is now called the digital security act but sadly we have now learned that some of the words are very loose and very rich leaves it open to abuse but to jump from there to say that the press has been muddled to say that there is no freedom of press in bangladesh let me just tell you there are probably 3 over 5060 daily newspapers been published from the. top to retail anarchy
1:48 am
in. private and if their companies i understand amnesty international said that in the 1st 9 months of last year more than $800.00 cases were filed under this act with the least language that you talk about with many of the most prominent editors and senior journalists increasingly targeted 800 cases in this with using this law which your government apparently inherited your government doesn't seem to have any reservations about using this law doesn't want to admit you have is nothing but a weapon the silence critics and suppress dissent that's the truth of it is i know i would accept your criticism and i would have accepted your allegations had you asked the human rights watch of the $800.00 or so. and i'm taking your freedom as you as you gave it to me who were arrested how many of them
1:49 am
are very german. you know you used a broad figure of 800 how really faced a c.d.s. a terrorist attacks in this country we had to fight to fight hard against terrorism how many of those 800 were actually terrorists how many of those 800. criminals who incited violence. activity without differentiating you have given me the phil figure of. police i challenge you to look at that figure and tell me how many were actually journalists and what i can i can break i can break down some of those figures for you because human rights groups are pretty much united in their condemnation of your government's crackdown on free speech especially during the current trend there make human rights watch said you arrested journalists artists students doctors
1:50 am
political opposition members and activists who spoke out against the government's response to the pandemic or otherwise criticize the ruling party last june you even arrested a 15 year old boy for allegedly defaming the prime minister on facebook the child was sentenced to time limit juvenile detention all right thanks let me now. unctad this question as as as clearly as i possibly can you have been telling you are telling your viewers that during this period of pandemic the government did all sorts of horrible things. have you told your r.d.s. that bangladesh is one of the few in the world compared to your own in the u.k. the united states or anywhere else in the world where we have actual spendable
1:51 am
really well with our limited resources we have one of the lowest death rates in the world we have the highest rate of recovered we have it and that our hospital to provide. one of these facts mentioned you have picked up 15 example or so i'm sure you want to change the subject doctor is wrong and i'm sure you want to talk good things about your country because that's what you're paid to do that's why you know government that's why i'm from brazil. why is lie i why i'm asking do you turn a blind eye to what the un committee against torture has been calling the widespread and retain commission of torture and ill treatment you passed an act in 2013 supposedly outlawing torture but 6 years later only 17 cases had been filed against security personnel and not
1:52 am
a single one had been completed by 6 years later not one in 6 years had been greeted is that a proud achievement for government it is that allegedly is cracking down on top he didn't visit it's great. well let me again think you're right in the sense when the state that is in 70. lumber of. target has been filed and none of them yes. i take your statement to be 3 and i will agree that this is not a very. good. raffle but the truth of the matter is we get passed a law. the truth of the matter is we are trying to deal bill with it and where i am constantly objecting not because you think i'm doing this because
1:53 am
i am as you say i am paid. to do this i might done the same thing to you and say is this not right that you are you are being paid simply to make this attacks that are putting it into broad wide context every question you have asked so. you have gone straight into the negative. even on them when you said very clearly that all this horrible thing that happened please tell me another country in the whole wide world which is just the pandemic as effectively as our government. surveys it's very good tactic to change the subject but i don't want to leave it because you said your government is taking action against the human rights abuses are is it time to take action against members of the so called rapid action the tally and that you have because they the
1:54 am
un says its members have been credibly alleged to have committed torture arbitrary arrests and acknowledged detention disappearances and extrajudicial killings of people in their custody you tell me about the good things your country has done but i am not embarrassed with the actions that this rapid action but alan has been carrying out in the name of your government your government is killing me against killing it. let me say with all orders and humility and embarrassment that the sum of that is that you have just. stated are true there have been instances of that which nobody in the government in his or her right might defend but and lou what you do john who's in charge or so of course there wasn't a memorandum on anything about that. with mr sebastian let me finish you have asked
1:55 am
me a question let me finish answering what you did not see in your. question is how many of those. rapid battalion police force have been removed from services how many of them are under investigation and how many of them have been charged this was not mentioned by you this is the role of the government that when it finds out that something had some degree just while ation of human rights or law has taken place there must get to the bottom i don't think you're always. but i do resent not being given the credit for the efforts that you have. all right talked to cameras me being good to have you in conflict thank you very much indeed. thank you myth about you know been fucked up i don't think you
