Internet Censorship within Tunisia is a hot issue.

The Court of Appeals is viewing case number 99325 today. The case accuses the Tunisian Agency of Internet for not blocking porn sites after the revolution. It comes after complaints from a group of Tunisian lawyers about the dangerous effects of these sites on the youth and especially their stated discrepancies with Islamic traditions.

The Tunisian Agency for Internet showed its respect for the court’s decision and expressed its willingness to make a special effort to ensure that the operation of blocking will not affect the quality of internet services in Tunisia. Internet sites have not been blocked since the revolution. Before the January 14th , the internet was regularly and strictly censored.
