Seek public input on government's proposed cybercrime law

This petition had 1,885 supporters

The passage of the Cybercrime Bill in its current form would be a serious violation of, inter alia, Constitutional Articles 19 and 19-A. Section 31, in particular would give the PTA/Government of Pakistan unfettered powers to control speech and access to information. 

IT professionals, human rights activists and civil society demand:

- the draft Bill be made public and input be sought from a broad-based representation of the private IT sector, as well as the public at large;

- Section 31 be removed in its entirety;

- Pakistani citizens' Constitutional right to privacy and freedom of expression be protected and upheld
