Kazakhstan National Security Commission is working with Foreign Ministry to block websites promoting terrorism, Tengrinews.kz reports citing deputy head of the National Security Commission Kabdulkarim Abdikazimov.
"All these servers are located in the European Internet zone and we cannot block the access directly, as modern technologies will make them available via different proxy-servers and programs anyway. That's why we are working with the authorities, including the Senate, to get through our suggestions on interaction of the organizations and working with the global community. The Senate has supported us today and we are working in this direction, via the Foreign Ministry, to influence adoption of certain laws limiting activities of these Internet-resources located outside of our country," Abdikazimov said introducing the draft law on countering terrorism to members of the Majilis.
He stated that around 950 websites promoting terrorism, violence and extremism were blocked in Kazakhstan by court rulings in 2011-2012. The courts are currently reviewing over 150 more requests of the prosecutors upon results of a monitoring performed by the National Security Commission and law-enforcement authorities.
