Order suspending cyber crime law to remain in force, High Court

High court has declined to review temporary orders suspending the current law on cyber crime.
Justice Wilfrida Okwani dismissed the application by the Attorney General seeking to review the orders obtained by Bloggers Association saying it lacks merit.
The judge ruled that the state failed to demonstrate that the orders sought are justified.
The bloggers have imputed the recent law arguing that its implementation raises an imminent danger to the Bill of Rights through arrests and prosecutions.
The AG had implored the court to set aside the orders arguing that public interest was not considered when they were issued.
It was  AG’s argument that the orders have suspended provisions which are not under scrutiny.
