Default SCO Cyberpolice

Kazakhstan has proposed the creation of a combined Internet police unit within the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (China, Russia, and the -stans). Experts say this can and probably will be realised shortly on the level of Internal Affairs Ministries of the member states.

The Kazakh side has already sent an overview of the project to Russia, where it is being made into a law. Many SCO leaders agree that tighter control over the Internet is necessary today, since it has become a tool of crime, especially for fraud, film and music piracy, and illegal pornography; and an outlet for various political and religious extremists, including certain groups actively engaged in terrorism.

Most SCO members' security services already have within them cyber security divisions. It should therefore be simple enough to create the new organisation based on them.

Expert Ekaterina Aksenova thinks this may also be a political strategy, to, somehow, balance America's influence in cyberspace.

"They have a huge unit there, eganged in cybercrime all over the world. They have so-called digital diplomacy that is connected to rebel groups, dissidents, and other forces that help dismantle regimes the USA sees as enemies. They have big programs aimed at supporting all sorts of insurrections in different countries. So, this new SCO cyberpolice is a way for our countries to defend themselves from this."

Besides Kazakhstan itself, Russia and Tajikistan have already approved the proposal. Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan are excpected to vote in favor as well. The desiding word will be with China, and, since they too have a hard approach to Internet control, any objections from them are unlikely.

yes the internet is no longer the domain of nerds. a big part of the mid east revolution was organized online. this is why syria has banned facebook.

and the monitoring is no longer limited to third world backwards countries. The UK was proposing to monitor those posts which might inside riots in its borders, after the huge riots last year.

I bet Putin wishes he had done what Lukashenko did in Belarus and impose censorship on the Internet. It would be much much too late to do it now. He would never get away with it now. The Russian public simply wouldn't stand for it.
