Read up on the cyber crimes bill coverage

If all goes well, we will have The Express Tribune’s national reporter Azam Khan speak with class on Wednesday about his reporting on the cyber crimes draft bill. The bill drew a strong negative response from Internet activists and journalists in Pakistan because it is being seen as a poorly drafted legislation that will endanger more civil liberties than it will protect. I went through some of the articles Azam has written over the past few months and have made a selection below. I want you to go through the articles before our session, so you can ask him questions both about the issue itself and its coverage in the media.
