A group of human rights organisations have expressed their deepest concern regarding the Iraqi authorities' recent campaign to crack down on 'indecent content' online. This crackdown, they say, has a chilling effect and will stifle free speech in the country.
The statement, which can be read in full here, is signed by the following organisations:
Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR)
Human Rights Watch (HRW)
INSM for Digital Rights in Iraq
Masaar - Technology and Law Community
