Yes, that has been the case for few years. This is why his parents as well as in Bangladesh context some people say he is 'innocent' or 'victimized', wich is usually quite different in meaning in the west I say. However this FBI/CIA way of arresting suspect and the punishment [term] if convicted fairly call for criticism. I hope his case works/create as a turning point on this regard.
