The E-Crime Bill has been enacted
We hear that this Bill has been passed as an Ordinance by the President but no signs of the new draft appears to be available on any of the government websites. A number of us have tried to get hold of it through sources in the Ministry of IT & Telecom as well as the PSEB but to no avail. However, the author of the Bill has appeared on some television channels to laud its passing as an Ordinance.
I really cannot comment on it until I get my hands on the current document. In the form that we saw it last, it was definitely not a piece of legislation that should have been passed without a complete review.
These are presentations made by Barrister Zahid Jamil at a Civil Society meeting at T2F to give business people and other professionals, students and journalists an idea of why the Bill should not be enacted in its present form.
