GENEVA (1 March 2022) – UN human rights experts have called on the Government of Iran to abandon its efforts to enact a new law that would effectively isolate the country from the global internet.
The Iranian Parliament may soon ratify the “Regulatory System for Online Services Bill” – more commonly referred to as the “User Protection Bill” – and adopt the legislation in mid-March by invoking a constitutional provision that permits the regular parliamentary process to be circumvented.

If enacted, the legislation will force technology companies to “follow state guidelines” or be subject to bandwidth throttling and blocking. read more
