Ethiopia clamps down on Skype and other internet use on Tor
Al Jazeera recently reported that Ethiopia passed a law on 24 May criminalising the use of VoIP (voice over internet protocol) calls. It said the maximum sentence was 15 years in jail. The BBC could not independently confirm the details.
The war on terrorism is fought on many fronts. Civilized nations are using state of the art tools to stop terrorists from causing mayhem. This includes monitoring and eavesdropping on all calls be it landline or Internet (VOIP) call, military engagements and other covert means. Ethiopia is no exception in this regard. The country has been fighting terrorists using appropriate mechanisms at its disposal. However, the latest news about criminalizing VOIP uses in the country is disheartening! We understand Ethiopia does not have the luxury to monitor all VOIP calls like the rich western nations to stop terrorist actions! But, banning the use altogether is a drastic measure that needs to be reviewed again by the respected authorities! We have registered our misgiving, about the new law, with the authorities. There has to be another way to address the issue. For the record the answer we got from an official was “the use of VOIP calls has never been legal in Ethiopia to begin with” VOIP use in Ethiopia is illegal for commercial or individual use! There is hope however that the government may not strictly enforce the law on law-abiding citizens.(aigaforum June 16, 2012)
