Article 19 and Bytes for All, Pakistan have just issued a joint statement on encryption ban in Pakistan.




We looked at it from human rights and common internet users perspective. Thought it will be of interest to you.

APNIC 32 is available for remote streaming. I will be speaking at the Global Collaboration Plenary which will begin in a few minutes via http://meetings.apnic.net/32/remote


You can access presentations as well. As you know there are IPv6 transition issues where privacy becomes a concern.

@Ginger and colleagues,

CoE is pushing the same treaty in Pakistan too. They organized a major regional conference in Colombo last year, where they took quite a few bureaucrats from the government and IT Business Association to attend. In fact, one of the parliamentary member also attended it (though she resigned from the parliament recently). Now they are hugely lobbying for getting it signed by the government of Pakistan.And as things stand, they may well get these signatures fairly soon.

On this issue, we are in regular touch with Gus Hosien and Simon Davies of Privacy International https://www.privacyinternational.org/. Both have a lot of reservations about this treaty. Here is the link to what they wrote quite long ago and they told that nothing has changed since then.


Thought that this information will be of interest to some of you :) Keep us posted kindly if you have more information as we are very keenly interested in this issue. Kati is now on leave for a few days but upon her return, we do plan to do something about it in Pakistan.

We will keep you posted with the developments here :)

Are you watching EFF? Dangerous Cybercrime Treaty Pushes Surveillance and Secrecy Worldwide Commentary by Katitza Rodriguez... see https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2011/08/cybercrime-treaty-pushes-surv...

Do you agree with Katitza? What do you think? How does this compare to the Commonwealth Cybercrime Initiative? (see the discussion on the Security groups)

Hope to share from the large knowledge base.

How do we protect privacy if there is any on the Internet?

Warm regards.
