Punish those who call for violence on web: MedvedevNovember 22nd, 2011 - 5:00 am ICT by IANS
Moscow, Nov 22 (IANS/RIA Novosti) People who call for violence on the internet should be brought to justice, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has said.
Medvedev said Monday at a meeting with regional media that there cannot be any freedom “when calls to go and kill somebody are spilling from the internet and social networks”.
He said legal responsibility on the internet was a very complicated issue.
“To establish legal responsibility for comments on the internet and social networks would mean to destroy the internet itself,” he said.
Russian Communication Minister Igor Shchegolev has said that internet censorship was “absolutely meaningless” since “the model of the internet is designed in a way that information inside it remains unsinkable and self-recovering”.
