Europe is going to control the net

April 23 2008

Controversy about censorship on the Internet in Russia and the rest under hot debate, unexpectedly led to the tough measures in the countries of Eastern and Western Europe. Under the new law the incitement on the web to conduct terrorist attacks or instructions about making bombs would be in the EU criminalized. However, experts doubt that the European security officials will determine the fine line between self-expression and a real provocation.

EU countries agreed on the need to tighten liability for incitement to terrorist acts to suppress militant groups active on the Internet, according to Reuters.

The reason for the concern of law enforcement agencies, according to the agency, the police were reported, indicate the fact that in recent years, the global network attracts more attention to the terrorist gangs, for which resources such as blogs, chats, or forums have become a platform for planning special operations, exchange or mass propaganda.

As a result, from now to address the Ministers of Justice - the European Union in calling for the spread of terrorist attacks, as well as publication on websites instructions to create explosive devices is a criminal offense.

The framework agreement entitles courts to require the provider's closing the site with such content, if the corresponding server is located on the territory of the European Union.

Furthermore, the Ministers of Interior in cooperation with the EU ministers of justice have started to develop an early warning system about the theft or disappearance of explosives and detonators, as well as the procurement of large quantities of materials that can be used to create explosive devices. A new scheme should work in the European Community in the coming months.

According to the Minister of Justice of Germany Brigitte Zypries, several countries have advocated a tougher version of the agreement. In particular, they proposed to make criminal offenses and attempts to spread terrorist propaganda, that is itself an extremist writing of the text would be punishable by law, according to Look.
