The council's decision to postpone the vote on the draft "information crimes law" that was scheduled to take place in the session held last Thursday, came to confirm the continuation of the debate over the law, which Parliament is divided over between those it deems necessary and those who consider it a restriction of public and private freedoms.
The postponement decision came after deputies opposed to the bill violated the quorum of the parliament session, which prompted the parliament's presidency to postpone the vote.
The draft law has previously been criticized by parliamentarians, politicians, and human rights defenders because of some of its clauses that allow the authorities to impose heavy penalties and fines on journalists and activists who express their opinions on social media, other websites, and means of communication, which is considered a restriction of the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the constitution.
A member of Parliament and one of the leaders of the civil movement in the country, Shorouq Al-Abayji, acknowledged the existence of "political forces that want a cybercrime law in order to legitimize repression and silence free voices." According to her.
Al-Abayji said that "the issue of freedom of expression, and some other problematic issues, were articulated battles in several previous parliamentary sessions, and there is currently a conflict in Parliament between the attempt to eliminate freedom of expression, which is one of the most important pillars of democracy, and the parties defending democracy. ".
She pointed out that freedom of expression represents the only gain achieved for Iraq after the US occupation in 2003, and today there are those who want to restrict this freedom through suppressing demonstrations, kidnappings, threats and pressure on media professionals, journalists and anyone who publishes.
Al-Abayji added that "all of this constitutes violations of freedom of expression, and above all there are those who want to legitimize more repression," noting that "there is a clear battle between a brutal repressive authority that defends its interests in the fiercest way, and a people who wants life, freedom and progress."
Al-Abayji considered that "the reality of the Iraqi situation is going for the worse, and the ruling class and its representatives in the legislative authority do not understand the lessons of history, even close to them, and the increase in repression will have serious repercussions on the Iraqi scene."
She accused Parliament of "attempting to seize the time opportunities to pass some laws, including the Information Crimes Law."
She explained that "the law restricts the freedoms of journalists and activists due to the presence of illogical penalties, and some of these penalties are rubbery, allowing the conviction of those who carry out investigative journalism, or express an opinion on any issue," explaining that the penalties amount to imprisonment, and the imposition of large financial fines.
On the other hand, Naim Al-Aboudi, a member of parliament from the "Sadiquon" bloc, expressed his support for passing the law. He said, during a television interview, that "all countries of the world have laws regulating computer-related issues."
He pointed out that the law is not only related to restricting the use of communication sites, indicating that it seeks to preserve important websites related to the sovereignty of the country, as he said.
According to the draft "Information Crimes Law", which is awaiting a vote by Parliament, penalties of up to 10 years in prison, and fines of up to 15 million Iraqi dinars (equivalent to 10,000 US dollars), are imposed on those who misuse the Internet and communication sites.
A member of the Parliament's Legal Committee, Salim Hamza, previously ruled out voting on the "Information Crimes Law" soon, explaining that the law will be carried over to the next parliamentary session.
He pointed out that the law still needs further study and careful follow-up, indicating that its passage requires political consensus.
Lawyer Muhammad al-Kindi considered that the law carries "brutal penalties", and said that "the Iraqi Information Crimes Law is a poorly drafted law with brutal penalties that violate the right to proper litigation procedures and violate freedom of expression." He added that this "contradicts democratic constitutions."
