Egyptian activists have condemned the draft anti-cyber crime law published by the research and legal studies committee of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the political arm of Muslim Brotherhood.

Ahram Arabic-language portal reported on Thursday the 13 articles of FJP's anti-cyber crime law.

Dozens of activists used Twitter to criticise the FJP’s draft law which was copied directly from the Saudi anti-cyber crime law without any changes.

Article 12 of the controversial draft law still contains the word “Kingdom” which is irrelevant to the Arab Republic of Egypt.

Article 12 says, "Application of this law shall not prejudice the provisions of relevant laws, especially those pertaining to intellectual property rights, nor relevant international agreements to which the Kingdom is party."

The Saudi anti-cyber crime law was issued under the Council of Ministers Decision No. 79 in 2007 and it was approved by Royal Decree No. M/17.

His master's voice
I hope this is does not mean that there is a direct import channel from another Arab capital to the bill introducers in parliament. The trap is now set for anyone taking orders from abroad to be exposed as the whole of society is sick and tired of the corrupting hand that takes away their freedoms and holds them back from progressing to a higher standard of living and better living conditions.

Who will be next King of Egypt?
It’s understood FJP will not introduce anything new to Egypt. They will bring Saudi Sharia Law here too. But who will they nominate to be King and which family is to rule? Will it be it Al Saud or Al Thani? Or will it be an Egyptian Brother? But let me assure you Brothers, Egypt will neither be a monarchy nor will Saudi Sharia be implemented here. We have the best Islamic institution and the best Scholars of Islam in the World. They know their Sharia and how to implement it.
