Electronic Crimes Bill (PECB) 2015 (Pakistan)

Post by being lonely » Apr 17, 2015 Views: 1263

Uploading photos on Instagram and Facebook or sending emails or text messages to a recipient without their consent may be considered harmless online behaviour, but under the new Prevention of Electronic Crimes Bill (PECB) 2015, these actions and many more could land unsuspecting Internet users in jail.

The bill criminalises all such activities. Nowhere in the world is spam a criminal offence, but it is about to become one in Pakistan.




Disseminating obscene or immoral messages on Facebook, Twitter or other social networks has been made an offence under Section 20 without defining ‘obscenity’ or ‘immorality’, thus giving sweeping powers to investigating agencies to implicate anyone on the charges.
