“I want to express my gratitude to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and judiciary as well. I thanked media personnel too,” she said. On Thursday, Bangladesh Cyber Tribunal in its maiden judgment in a case lodged under Digital Security Act sentenced OC of Sonagazi Moazzem Hossain to eight years in prison.
