In a statement on Jan 11, the Awami League had warned the people that fake Facebook accounts have been opened for Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, her sister Sheikh Rehana and daughter Saima Hossain.
Those who created the pages or accounts were requested to announce them as ‘unofficial’ or else legal actions would follow, according to the statement.
It also said that the prime minister’s son and ICT adviser Sajeeb Wazed has a verified Facebook page.
