Shahira Abdullah on Online Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill

07:14 Min

Tackling harmful online content requires a whole-of-society effort, said NMP Shahira Abdullah. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Nov 9), she said everyone has a part to play by proactively taking steps to prevent exposure and supporting victims of online harm. She also sought clarifications on the Bill. She wanted to know how much time would be given to online communication services to disable content deemed as harmful, as well as how long the content would be blocked. She also wanted to know how the Infocomm Media Development Authority would update its code of practice to keep pace with rapidly changing technology.
