Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- The President of the National Human Rights Council, Amina Bouayach, has recommended that the government adopt a law on freedom of information exchange. The aim of the law is to protect the right to freedom of expression online and prevent people from being punished for publishing content on digital platforms and social media.
During yesterday’s seminar to present the council’s annual report, Bouayach expressed concern about individuals being prosecuted or punished for publishing content on digital platforms and social media.
She stated that the adoption of a law on freedom of information exchange would provide a framework to address the challenges posed by new forms of freedom of expression in the virtual world.
Bouayach also emphasized that such a law could serve as a crucial support for press freedom and publishing and could help expand the scope of practicing freedoms, particularly in light of the development of public expression on social media platforms.
