Racist propaganda: ''Same rules for the Internet as for other media''

[27 SEP 2002] The Legal Affairs Committee rapporteur, Ignasi Guardans, a Spanish MP in the LDR Group, is in favour of a protocol to the Convention on Cybercrime so as to get signatory countries to introduce legal provisions for countering racism and Holocaust-denial on the Internet. He also recommends making it a crime for websites to host offensive material.
