The Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) election is set to be held on October 3. Ahead of that, BFF has issued a legal notice against unnamed social individuals who have been using various social platforms to smear, mock and criticise the BFF hierarchy ahead of the election.
The legal notice was issued by BFF legal adviser and Supreme Court advocate MH Tanvir. He said that the activities aimed to ruin BFF's image started on September 9 via comments on a Facebook post from BFF regarding the upcoming elections.
The legal notice claims that a group of social media users have since posted distasteful, ill-advised and humiliating comments on the Facebook account of BFF while doing the same on FIFA's official Facebook account, which is also portraying a negative image of the country to the rest of the world.
The legal notice also says that if anyone or any group continue to carry out such activities in an attempt to influence the elections, actions against them under the Digital Security Act will be taken.
Copies of the legal notice have been sent to Bangladesh Police, RAB, BTRC, Dhaka's DC and media representatives.
