Simplified pattern to be used in blocking pirate mirror sites
Communication Minister Nikolai Nikiforov spoke of the new procedure.
This week, the government commission on legislative activities approved the amendments to close access to pirate mirror websites. Communication Minister Nikolai Nikiforov said that if the document is adopted, mirror sites could be blocked in a simpler way.
"The Moscow City Court takes the initial decision to block a certain resource. Afterwards, if mirror sites appear and the right holders or Roskomnadzor can see them, then a paper is filed to the Moscow City Court. After that there is a court order rather than just a hearing," Mr. Nikiforov said explaining the new pattern. When asked what damage for the right holders will be prevented if the law is adopted, the Minister gave no response, according to the TASS.
Mirror sites are pirate websites that have been copied and are used after the original pirate sites are blocked. So far, no measures can be taken against auto-generated copies of blocked sites.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
