New laws to tackle cyber crimes


Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure Minister Harin Fernando said that arrangements are in place to introduce new laws to tackle rising incidents of website hacking and cyber bullying.

He said the Penal Code would be revised to include more legal provisions to deal with such offenses while responding to a question made by the media.

He said the Sri Lanka Computer Emergency Readiness Team (SLCERT) is presently engaged in developing new laws and he added that the findings would then be forwarded to the Justice Ministry for drafting an Amendment Bill.

He said those would then be presented to Parliament for approval.
