'Govt to sign deal with Facebook to prevent cyber crime'

  • Published at 03:13 am November 17th, 2015

The government will ink a deal with social media giant Facebook to prevent cyber crime in the country.

State Minister for Post, Telecommunications and Information Technology Tarana Halim said this in a meeting with the officials of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) on Tuesday.

Earlier, the government said it had a plan to sign an agreement with the US authorities in order to be better equipped in handling militant and terrorist activities on the internet.

The plan emerged from the thought that most of the social media websites are operated from the US.

The plan to sign an agreement with the US is part of a recent move of the Post and Telecommunication Ministry to identify why the country’s telecom regulator has been failing to stop criminal activities on the cyber world.

In a recent meeting, the ministry asked the BTRC to prepare a report as soon as possible with suggestions to solve the issues, said a senior ministry official.

Based on this report the ministry is looking to sign the deal with the US government.

The BTRC was supposed to submit the report within 10 days of getting the working paper prepared after that meeting. However, that paper has not arrived at the BTRC office as of November 4.
