The effects of the Information Crimes Law on the Media will be discussed at the panel held by Near East University

While technology has become one of the indispensable elements of life, it has also created new crime channels and crime types. This situation made it inevitable to establish a legal infrastructure with new rules and regulations. With the “Information Crimes Law” that entered into force in 2020 in the TRNC, our country has had a special law in this field. However, the Information Crimes Law, during the days of its preparation, also caused criticisms that it could restrict freedom of thought and publication. Well, has the fear come true?

At the panel, which will be hosted by the Near East University Faculty of Communication, Department of Journalism and moderated by Faculty Member Assist. Prof. Dr. İbrahim Özejder, all aspects of the media reflections of the enactment of the Information Crimes Law will be discussed.
