Information crimes... a political dispute delays the adoption of the law in Parliament

On Thursday, the legal committee of the Iraqi parliament acknowledged that there are still political disagreements regarding the information crimes law. However, they also highlighted that the implementation of this law could potentially decrease incidents of electronic extortion.

According to Raed Al-Maliki, a member of the committee, the Information Crimes Law is a crucial piece of legislation in Parliament. However, political disagreements have caused a delay in its adoption due to its inclusion of certain provisions that may limit freedom of expression. Al-Maliki emphasized that the Parliament must engage in thorough and extensive discussions to review and improve these provisions before the law can be approved.

During a Parliamentary Committee meeting, one member noted that the Information Crimes Law has articles that protect individual rights and freedoms, combat electronic extortion, and hold perpetrators accountable through legal punishment.

Several deputies are rejecting the proposed law on information crimes, citing numerous violations within the draft. Additionally, they believe that adding this law to the agenda for upcoming sessions would be a breach of the parliament’s internal system.
