ISLAMABAD: Standing Committee of the National Assembly has agreed to talk with the stakeholders of IT industry on Cyber Crime Bill. The standing committee has directed to its members over the concerns expressed by Joint action committee of IT industry that they should sit with the stakeholders and correct the mistakes found in the bill (PECB 2015) in order to stop crimes.
The chairman of the standing committee, Captain retired Safdar has told that this bill will be presented in the parliament. He said we decided to review the bill after listening to the concerns being expressed by the stakeholders of IT and form it in the interest of the public.
The joint committee IT industry was initially stopped entering the premises of the parliament but PPP’s MNA, Shazia Marri paved the way to the parliament. Shazia Marri herself went to the gate of the parliament and shouted at security constables.
She asked the security constables that parliament was not a bunker and the guests of the chairman committee should be allowed to enter. The joint committee protested and objected that they were not asked for any recommendations and they could be affected by the state of the bill.
