Item 29 of the law, uploaded by Ramy Raoof

Ramy Raoof shared the news about the recently approved Egyptian anti-Terror law, and the clauses related to the internet and social networks. I’m providing a rough translation here:

Clause 29 of the law

Any person who created or used a website on telecommunication networks, or the internet, or the likes, for the sake of inciting terrorist ideologies, to mislead or obstruct investigations by authorities, to exchange messages and information locally and internationally with terrorists, or send orders to terrorists will be sentenced to at least five years of high security imprisonment.

Anyone who illegally accessed an electronic government website, with the intention to read or access data or information on it, or to change / delete / destroy this information, with the intentions or in preparations mentioned in the first paragraph of this clause, will be sentenced to at least 10 years of high security imprisonement.
