Proposed Online Safety Bill more focused on imposing restrictions rather than protecting rights: Ex BASL Chief

Source

Colombo (LNW): Saliya Peiris PC, ex Chief of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL), raised concerns about the potential misuse of the proposed Online Safety Bill by Police and political figures.

The proposed bill seems more focused on imposing restrictions rather than protecting the citizens’ rights, Peiris told “@Hydepark” aired on Ada Derana 24 two days ago (Sep 29).

Commenting on the bill, Nalaka Gunawardena stated that the proposed bill limits public disclosure unjustly, adding that Sri Lanka needs a strong democracy as the island nation strives to amend past errors over the last 75 years.
