The Sierra Leone Bar Association (SLBA) has expressed concerns about the Bill titled: The Cybercrime Act, 2020, which is intended to be passed into law. A cursory look at the provisions of the said Bill raises serious concerns which require serious attention.
The Bar Association intends to state its position on the current Bill. Therefore, the executive has invited members who are interested to form a committee to look at the provisions therein and make recommendations where necessary.
These recommendations will be forwarded to the Government of Sierra Leone for immediate attention.
Those interested should reach out to the President +23279601556 or Secretary General +23276140723 of the Bar by either WhatsApp or SMS with their full details.
It is hoped that the Committee will complete this exercise within the required time for submission to Government.
