Hong Kong activists criticize the court ban on ‘violent’ content as a warning to internet facility. Hence, they challenge the interim order issued by the High Court. High Court issued a notice to prohibiting anyone from posting and re-posting any information. Because these postings promote violence, including on Telegram.
So, the activists don’t accept the court order because they want internet freedom. Secretary of Justice at the High Court filled the request to ban the posting materials on 31st October. So, he requests the court to restrict anyone. The hearing is on 15th November, and the High Court has accepted this request for some days. The High Court Judge Russell Adam Coleman granted it.
But, internet freedom groups are concerned that the order would harm the rights of expression. Thus, they are against the High Court’s order. Because they want to use the internet without any closure. This High Court Order would effect on ISPs or platform operators. Because they would force to filter or takedown political contents.
Two sections of the order will affect both users. However, the part (A) order will affect those who share the protest information online. While the part (B) will effect on ISPs or platform operators.
