17 Jul Nepal Proposes Three Years Prison Sentence for Right to Privacy Violations
Vice Chair of the Nepal Law Commission, Bhesh Raj Sharma, revealed that they have readied a preliminary draft of a bill that proposes a three-year jail sentence or fine up to Rs 30,000 or both for violators of an individual’s right to privacy.
The bill, which is related to implementation of fundamental rights as found in the constitution, will be sent to the line ministry this week.
Sharma says that enactment of law should deter violations to the privacy of individuals especially on social media sites. The vice chair added that they left compensation issues for judges to determine since loss cannot be predicted and may vary from person to person.
