South Africa Cybercrimes Bill will be impossible to implement without violating rights

2 December 2015 (APC for APCNews)

Cyber security is essential for the exercise of both online and offline rights, as it is key to privacy and the protection of personal data.

However, we suggest, along with many experts from different backgrounds, that the Bill be rejected in its current form.
