Amar Desh

The Daily Amar Desh, a Bengali newspaper of Bangladesh, has survived through a historical verdict of the Appellate Division of Bangladesh Supreme Court. The government cancelled the Declaration of the newspaper and stopped its publication on June 1, 2010 because of the absence of a legal publisher. The High Court Division of Bangladesh Supreme Court stayed the decision of the government for three months. The Appellate Division upheld the judgment of the High Court Division on 18 July, 2010.

This is a historical verdict for the freedom of press and journalists. We appreciate it.
