Passports of anti-state people to be cancelled: Minister

Information Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said, passports of Bangladeshi nationals, who are taking part in "anti-state activities" from abroad, would be cancelled.

The minister made the assertion while addressing reporters at his secretariat office in the capital on Thursday (January 13).

He said, staying abroad, spreading propaganda against the country, conspiring against the country for the purpose of violence are anti-state activities. If anyone gets involved in sedition activities, the state can revoke their passports.

The minister also said that yesterday's statement by UN human rights experts pointed out how extreme human rights were violated in the United States. The Guantanamo Bay prison is an example of how human rights are being violated in the country that talks of protecting human rights around the world.
