Accordingly, cybercrime law includes substantive, procedural and preventive law.

I'm in full support of the Cyber crime act2020.

Because it can help to regulate illegal access to data collection of information about person and institutions that serve as a threat to the peace of this country.

I want to condemn the Honourable Minister and his team for a job well done.

This Act is so important but I think there should more education on this because there are lots of citizens out there that have not heard about this Act and there are so may of them that don't even know the meaning and importance of cyber crime itself.

This should have been passed into law earlier than this time, putting a stop to the abusive and vulgar language of a particular individual residing in the Netherlands Abdul Will Kamara(aka Adebayor), we have lots of evidences against this individual who have reigned abusive words against president Bio, H.E. Mrs. Fatima Bio, Imams, Pastors, and senior citizens of this Country, he need to be brought into book for incitement and public nuisance.
