ProXPN Condemns Country Browsing Restrictions

Share Article

Countries browsing restrictions continue to widen their reach as unusual internet blockades are reported in Oman.

According to a report by The Hindu dated July 22nd 2012 http://www.thehindu.com/sci-tech/technology/internet/government-restrictions-on-websites-in-oman/article3670273.ece, restrictions on internet content access through government action or court rulings in India seem to have affected not only citizens of the country but also those in Oman.

The article goes on to add that due to internet traffic being routed in part through one or more internet service providers (ISP) in India, users in Oman were unable to access many of these sites.

The report further explains that this was a strange occurrence although ISP’s in different countries do enter into agreements for routing internet traffic, in this case restrictions applicable to one country unusually ended up having a bearing on another.

Matters have escalated since then with activists standing against such said restrictions, getting detained by Oman authorities as was the case with Jaddad. As reported in Ifex on the 25th of July 2013, http://www.ifex.org/digital_rights/2013/07/25/harassment_jaddad/, Jaddad, a 43 year old man, had voiced for political and social reforms on Facebook and his blog, advocated for improved compliance with international human rights standards by Oman and was a key organizer of pro-reform protests in 2011 in the Dhofar region in southern Oman . As a consequence he was arrested allegedly due to, as reported, a form of intimidation linked to his peaceful activism for reform.

Such allegations are just part and parcel of the injustices ProXPN is standing up against; calling on Oman and Governments worldwide to liberate their people with the human rights they deserve to have.
