Call for Action against Draconian E-Crime Bill 2007

September 5, 2007 at 4:37 pm 2 comments

The New E-Crime Bill 2007 is one of the most draconian laws yet to emanate from the Government. It conflicts with international treaties, usurps fundamental human rights, violates the Constitution and effectively lays the legal foundation for a police state. It also obstructs any international cooperation on cyber crime, terrorism and enforcement.

The legally and technically incorrect definitions in the E-Crime Bill 2007 ensure that rather than preventing cyber crimes, perpetrators will view Pakistan as a safe haven. The innocent will fall victim to its abuse, and for international and domestic businesses and investors, Pakistan will not be a destination of choice but a jurisdiction to stay away from.

What does the E-Crime Bill 2007 mean for you, as a citizen of civil society? Essentially, it adversely affects everyone who uses a computer or electronic device in Pakistan. We, the people, can still prevent this Bill from being passed. Find out more at a session led by Barrister Zahid Jamil at T2F this Friday.
