Kuwait Tightening Internet Controls

by Admin on January 14, 2016

Kuwait’s parliament has passed legislation to regulate web based media. This came just a day after a cybercrimes law came into effect.

All internet based news sites, TV stations and commercial services are subject to the new law. It does not include personal internet accounts such as blogs.

Bilingual business lawyers in Bangkok Chaninat and Leeds have been helping businesses succeed in Thailand for decades.

Only four MP’s opposed the law, with thirty seven voting in favor.

Those who opposed it argued it would be harmful to freedom of speech.
Amnesty International are among those who have denounced the “repressive” cybercrimes law.

MP Jamal al-Omar, added that the legislation breaches the Gulf state’s constitution. He said: “I believe that the government wants to use this law like the others to curb freedoms.”
