Parliament to pass law that could be a blow to freedom of opinion

Shafq News/ The Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee on Monday confirmed the readiness of the "Information Crimes" Law to vote in the new legislative chapter of the House of Representatives, amid concerns that the law will limit freedom of opinion in the country.

"The Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee and other parliamentary committees have completed the Information Crimes Act," committee member Ali al-Ghanimi told The Shafq News, adding that he was now ready to vote on it in the new legislative term of the House of Representatives.

He added that "the law on information crimes is one of the important laws in the House of Representatives, it must be legislated after the resumption of the sessions of the Council to reduce the phenomenon of leaking and publishing important information and documents of the Iraqi state through websites and social networking."

The Iraqi parliament has been writing a law on "information crimes" from early in life, including until previous sessions, but the lack of agreement on most of its provisions and opposition to civil society have delayed its adoption.

Many fear that the application of the law could be a springboard for restricting freedoms, and some say the adoption of the law could be a springboard for criminalizing criticism of parties, the quota system and religious and political symbols on social networking sites, and that the law should be criminalized and sentenced to imprisonment and fines.

MPs said at the end of July, that the parliamentary security and defense committee held an extraordinary meeting to discuss the law of information crimes and prepare it for a vote in the upcoming sessions of the House of Representatives, explaining that all the legal and technical procedures and aspects of the mechanisms for the implementation of the law have been completed after its adoption.
