Dhaka, Dec 2 (IBNS): A Bangladesh court on Tuesday found a Dhaka-based British journalist guilty of the contempt of court for challenging the official death toll from the country's Liberation War in 1971 through a blog post, media reports said.

The International Crimes Tribunal-2 has fined  David Bergman with $65.

"The International Crimes Tribunal-2 sentenced him “simple imprisonment until the rising of the court” and also fined him TK 5,000," The Daily Star reported.

"The tribunal asked Bergman, the editor (special reports) of the English daily New Age, to clear the fine within the next seven days. Otherwise, he will have to serve seven days' imprisonment, the court said," it reported.

The  contempt petition was filed by Supreme Court lawyer Abul Kalam Azad earlier this year.
