Bill to Criminalise 'Insulting' Online Posts

Mozambican government proposes a Bill that would criminalise SMSes, emails and other types of online posts that are considered ‘insulting’

The Mozambican government proposes a Bill that would criminalise SMSes, emails and other types of online posts that are considered ‘insulting’ or ‘jeopardise the security of the state’. 

Minister of science and technology, Louis Pelembe, explained that the tough penalties proposed in the Bill would ensure consumer protection and increase confidence in electronic transactions as a means of communication and provision of services.

Besides the provision on insulting content, the law would cover fraudulent access to the internet, databases and financial transactions.
