Egypt court rules against banning porn websites

Post by DJKeefy » Sat Aug 24, 2013 8:30 pm

Legal case demanding banning of pornography websites is rejected by Administrative Court.

The Administrative Court ruled on Saturday against the banning of pornography websites in Egypt.

A case was filed by lawyer Ibrahim El-Salamony against former President Mohamed Morsi's request to ban pornography websites in Egypt.

El-Salamony filed the case, arguing that marriage burdens and high unemployment in recent years have led many young men to turn to pornographic websites. Banning such sites, the lawyer said, would protect society.

Last November, former Prosecutor-General Abdel-Meguid Mahmoud submitted an official letter to the ministries of telecommunications, information and interior ordering that measures be adopted to ban pornographic websites in Egypt, based on a 2009 court order to this effect.

In May 2009, Egypt's Supreme Administrative Court declared a ban on pornographic websites. The move was based on a lawsuit filed by Islamist lawyer Nezar Ghourab.

Blocking pornographic websites would cost Egypt up to LE100 million ($16.5m) to implement and may place a significant strain on the country's internet services, according to telecom and IT experts.

The Australian government also thought this was possible but eventually worked out it would slow the internet so much that it would cause more protest. Of course the resources required to keep up with porn sites and their ever-changing addresses means the filter would always be very leaky anyway.
Pity all that energy was spent by the Islamists on battling this moral crime when they can't spend energy protecting women in the street from abuse but I suppose we all have different priorities :?

I don't see why barring pomegranite websites should be so expensive.

No, none. As for disaster, she shouldn't have reversed into the bacon-slicer.
