“Technological terrorism” as a new tool to pressurize free media and civil society

On Thursday July 13 Rada intended but failed to include in its daily agenda a bill under reg. No6688 initiated by the MPs Vinnyk, Tymchuk and Chornovol that poses significant threat to the freedom of speech and civil activity.

It defines the influence with the use of informational sources over decision making by the authorities, municipalities and their officials as a technological terrorism.

This regulation may cause any publicly announced critical statement regarding the authorities to be considered as a terrorism.

The bill empowers the SSS to shut down access to any web-site without court ruling, upon the decision of the prosecutor, investigator or RNBO, which significantly endangers the work of journalists and free media.
