No list of porn site visitors: authorities

DHAKA, - Posts and Telecommunications Division (PTD)in a statement today said that it would not prepare any list of the visitorsof pornographic websites.

The PTD came up with this statement against the backdrop of misinterpretation of its latest move of blocking pornographic websites in some social networking sites.

Besides, some of the media also reported that the PTD was making a list of the visitors of pornographic sites to make the list public.

The PTD firmly stated that "this misconception of making a list is inconsistent with our view and this was not said either."

"Technically, legally and ethically we cannot do so . . . We respect privacy and personal information of individuals," it said in the statement.

The PTD requested all to refrain from spreading such rumor and assured people of protecting their privacy.
