The Parliamentary Human Rights Committee has set, on Sunday, the date for the approval of the Freedom of Expression and Information Crime Law in the House of Representatives.
"The law was to be included in the parliament's agenda in October last year, but recent events have prevented this," said committee member Ahmed Al-Kinani.
He pointed out that "the law may be proposed again for the purpose of discussion and voting after the formation of the new government and approval of the general budget, especially as it is one of the priorities of the Council in the coming period."
Al-Kinani affirmed, "The country is in urgent need to legislate the Freedom of Expression and the Right to Demonstrations guaranteed by the Constitution in Article 38 as well as the reduction of information crimes," dispelling concerns "about restricting freedoms through this law." End 29 / A 43
