This is a pertinent issue in today’s social media age. Nepal does not have a particular law relating to this topic and the Electronic Transactions Act is often employed to censor speech on the web. There have been instances when people have been arrested for criticising leaders. Media Action Nepal advocates for freedom of expression and freedom to disseminate information within legal parameters online. We monitor all news laws, rules and regulations introduced in this regard and assess their adherence to democratic and constitutional principles.
