No more phone calls inviting you to come and drink a cup of coffee at the Cybercrime unit office, this time the call claimed that Karim is using a stolen phone, and his presence is important to close the case (as per LBC report).
- There will be a reply with more transparency
- She is following the public prosecutor and that Karim knew the reason behind requesting his presence
- It’s not ok to insult people and attack them morally, there’s a difference between freedom of expression and defamation.
Defamation law in Lebanon needs to be adapt, people are changing and occupying new spaces that didn’t exist before in the freedom of expression, the law should be amended to accommodate these changes. Excluding the detention and the arrest from this charge, and make it only a civil case is a good start, to begin with.
We will be waiting for more updates from cybercrime unit on Karim’s case, who’s still detained at the time I am publishing this.
