Administrative Blocking of Websites "Inciting Terrorism"Update: 26 Sep 2017 State replied
On 13 February 2015, the Interior Ministry of French ordered the administrative blocking of five websites "inciting or defending terrorism" under the Terrorism Act passed in November 2014. Several within the French media believe that at least one of the sites in question was not directly inciting or defending terrorism. On 30 March 2015, the OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, Dunja Mijatović, condemned the unilateral decision by the Interior Ministry of French to censor these sites without prior judicial oversight. She called on the French government to reconsider the parts of the anti-terrorist law enabling website blocking which currently does not have to undergo judicial oversight.
