By Aaron Humes: Prime Minister Dean Barrow, acting for Senator and Minister of National Security Michael Peyrefitte, today introduced a Cyber Crime Bill which he said would go through the relevant House Committee before debate.
However, he expected there would be widespread support for a piece of legislation he said was long overdue.
In introducing the Bill, the Prime Minister acknowledged his wife, Special Envoy for Women and Children Kim Simplis-Barrow, as among many who contributed to and consulted on the development of the Bill.
The bill proposes to create certain offenses relating to cyber-crime and attendant penalties. It follows several incidents of alleged slander and criminal activity in the social media sphere and attends general concerns of such crimes and activities.
The bill has been referred to the Constitution and Foreign Affairs Committee of the House for examination, consideration and report.
