Prez Goodluck Proposes Death Penalty For Cyber Crimes

From the same sex bill, to a death penalty for cyber crimes, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is proposing one bill at a time. GEJ has proposed death sentences on people “who hack into the Critical National Information Infrastructure or computer networks resulting in the loss of lives”. Punch reports. This proposal in the Cyber Crime Bill 2013, is currently before the House of Representatives. If the offender causes grievous body injuries to another person, the bill states that he/she will be sentenced to 15 years in prison. But using any computer network for terrorism attracts life sentence. The bill will also criminalizes child pornography (a 10-year jail term or a fine of N 20 Million or both) and forcing children to engage in sexual activities (a 10-year jail term or a fine of N 15 Million).
