Controversial Cyber Crime Bill Will Become a Law 1st August

Information Technology Minister Anusha Rehman, said that the amended “Electronic Crime Bill 2016” will become law next week to deal with cyber crimes in Pakistan.

Anusha Rehman said, “The amended Bill will be presented before the National Assembly on August 1 and would get an easy sail to become a law”

Senate has passed the bill with 50 amendments and now the bill be sent back to National Assembly and it would become law after getting passed from the lower house.

However Anusha Rehman refuted opposition’s claim of 50 amendments in the bill, and said there are only 18 amendments made in the bill. These are minor changes/amendments and would not affect the basic objective of the bill.

She criticized Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for, Chaiperson of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) for making a hue and cry at the eleventh hour. PPP has nominated Farhatullah Babar who gave significant input in the bill.

She said the law would help to protect women from online harassment as many women get victimized online. This law would assist us in protecting these innocent women.

IT minister added that internet is the fuel to economic growth in this age and we cannot block it to overcome the issues, but we cannot close our eyes as well and we have brought this bill to stop the evil effects of internet.

Currently Pakistan has no law to deal with cyber crimes and Telecommunication laws have no such provisions to deal with these crimes.
