Due to the Authority’s Failure in Blockading the Political, Religious and Social Electronic Websites
Demands for Creating an Electronic Security Apparatus to Blockade the Human Rights Organizations and Political Movements
26th December 2009
The Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights is following up with great concern what was published in the Bahraini Al-Watan Newspaper – closely associated with the Government – on 26th December 2009, which was interviews with a group of Members of the Shura Council – who are appointed by the King – where they demanded the Authority to create an electronic security apparatus in order to contribute in monitoring the websites that harm the reputation of Bahrain and threatens its security[i].
The Members of the Shura Council indicated in the interview that the Bahraini Ministry of Information is not carrying out its role in controlling the websites that harm the reputation of the Authority and publishes false facts about the conditions in Bahrain.
