Guyana's Cyber Crime Bill aims to crack down on child porn

Dec 29, 2015 | Caribbean, NEWS | 0 comments

Guyana is taking steps to clamp down on sharing nude images, including child pornography, when the Cyber Crime Bill becomes law. The bill states that those who use technology to arrange a meeting with a child with the intent of abuse or sexual activity with a child, or producing child pornography, is committing an offence. A person convicted by a Magistrates’ court for using a computer for child pornography could be fined 5 million Guyanese dollars and face five years in prison. If found guilty by a Judge and Jury, they could be fined ten million dollars and jailed for 10 years. The Cyber Crime Bill also makes a criminal offence to capture, store or transmit images of a person’s private areas without that person’s consent.
