“Cyberspace is like real space. Firstly, it belongs to the citizens of the country; secondly, using social media is among the rights of the public; thirdly, it is part of the country’s territory and system of governance; and fourthly, it is in need of being organized, managed and indigenized,” the Judiciary spokesman Gholam-Hossein Esmaeili said in an address to a press conference, IRNA reported.
At present, numerous viruses far worse than the coronavirus are spreading in cyberspace. Crimes, such as selling weapons and illegal drugs, massive fraud, and propagating the idea of suicide, particularly among the youth, are rampant in cyberspace, which is not acceptable at all, he added.
The spokesman noted that the Judiciary maintains that cyberspace needs to be organized.
