With the numerous laws that already exist to regulate—or better still, suppress—the media, and the diligence with which new ones are being prepared, one would think that of all the areas that need fixing, our government expects the journalists to be "fixed" first. But why? Why is there never an acceptance that independent media is the lifeblood of democracy, good governance, rule of law and accountability? Why is there no recognition of the fact that countries that advance into the rank of "developing countries" do so not only with higher GDP, but also with higher levels of human rights and all sorts of freedoms? Development cannot be just in economy, it must also be in society. It must be holistic to be meaningful. Last Saturday, in a belated observation of the World Press Freedom Day, all the apex bodies of journalists, and those representing the owners and editors, jointly expressed concerns about the state of the free press in Bangladesh, and the challenges before the industry as a whole.

Light commercial vehicle market expanding

LCVs control 42 per cent of the commercial vehicle market on average, but in 2021, the segment's market share edged up to 45 per cent on the back of 6 per cent growth in sales, industry analysts said. "The demand for LCVs is growing as the number of SMEs and online businesses in the country has risen in line with the receding pandemic situation," said Humayun Rashid, executive director of Energypac, the sole local distributor of Chinese automaker JAC Motors.

The High Court today granted a six-month bail to cartoonist Ahmed Kabir Kishore -- in jail for around 10 months -- in a case filed under the Digital Security Act on charge of deteriorating law and order situation and creating confusion over Covid-19 pandemic. The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman granted the bail after hearing a petition filed by Kishore, seeking bail on health grounds. The court granted the bail on the ground that he has been languishing in jail for a long period and investigation into the case against him is ongoing. During hearing on Monday, his lawyer Jyotirmoy Barua told the court that Kishore told him he was tortured in custody and that his right ear was nearly impaired and a scar had developed on his left leg. Eleven people, including Kishore, writer Mushtaq Ahmed and Rashtrochinta activist Didarul Islam Bhuiyan, were prosecuted under the DSA by Rab-3's Assistant Director Abu Bakar Siddique on May 6 last year. Kishore and Mushtaq were arrested on May 5 last year and Didarul was arrested the following day. On January 11, police pressed charges against Kishore, Mushtaq and Didarul, dropping the names of the eight others. But, Dhaka Cyber Tribunal on February 10 ordered the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit to further investigate charges against all 11 accused. Didarul was granted bail in September last year, Mushtaq died in custody on February 25 and Kishore has been behind bars for 10 months. Kishore and Mushtaq's bail petitions were rejected six times, with the last occasion being on January 6, according to their lawyers.
