KRG Moves to Outlaw Porn

By John Lee.

According to a report from BasNews, members of the Kurdistan Region parliament have put forward a draft law blocking pornographic websites in Iraqi Kurdistan.

MP Bahzad Darwesh from the Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU) told the publication that 27 MPs signed a draft law on 20th September, proposing the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) block access to online porn.

Darwesh claimed that the draft law has been made to save customs, traditions and social values, adding that MPs from Islamic parties, other members of parliament have signed the bill.

The Iraqi parliament recently voted to restrict access to internet pornography in the country, but the newly-ratified law is not enforceable until the Kurdistan Region’s parliament votes in favour of the bill.
