At APC, we remain concerned about the proposed Prevention of Electronic Crimes Bill in Pakistan which poses grave risks to freedom of expression, the right to privacy, and access to information in the country.
A group of NGOs, including APC, have sent an open letter to Facebook, in representation of individuals who have experienced harm as a result of Facebook’s “real name” policy.
“It’s time for Facebook to provide equal treatment and protection for all who use and depend on Facebook as a central platform for online expression and communication.”
The courageous actions of whistleblowers defend human rights, save lives and billions of dollars in public funds, and contribute to making governments more transparent and companies more accountable.
APC submits a statement to UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, David Kaye, that makes the case that whistleblowers need strong legal protections to protect them from retaliation and enable them to report offences safely and freely.
APC welcomes the appointment of Mr. Joseph Cannataci as the first United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy, which was announced on 3 July. Cannataci’s appointment is a historic step to address the right to privacy at the global level.

APC’s research shows that the reality of online abuse should be a serious concern for all those working on internet governance, development and access. Initiatives like ICANN’s new Domain Registration proposal are steps in the opposite direction.
