Human rights organisations call on Libyan authorities to rescind the new cybercrime law

November 10, 2021

The undersigned organisations call upon Libyan authorities to rescind the cybercrime law recently adopted by the Libyan House of Representatives. The law would severely restrict freedom of expression, curtail press freedom, and legalise mass surveillance of speech online. Additionally, the law allows for warrantless blocking of websites and content.
