Section 57 of ICT Act being removed: Inu


PV Desk : The government has finalized the draft of ‘Digital Security Act 2017’ removing the section 57 and other controversial sections of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act.
Informationa Minsiter Hasanul Haq Inu made the disclosure to reporters after an inter-ministerial meeting at secretariat on Wednesday (Nov 29).
He said the controversial Section 57 will be revoked for its misinterpretation and misuse in the past. It will be revised and implemented in a much clearer way in the Digital Security Act.
