House refers Cyber Crimes Act to committees for discussion

The House of Representatives has referred the Cyber Crimes Act to a joint ICT, defense, national security, and constitutional and legislative committee for discussion, deputy head of the House ICT Committee Ahmed Zedan tells Al Mal. The joint committee reportedly began its review of the legislation yesterday, and plans to hearings on cybercrimes soon. The legislation attempts to regulate crimes related to the internet and social media, but will oblige security forces to seek authorization before tracking any specific individuals to avoiding infringing on citizens’ personal privacy.
