‘The rule of law has to apply online as well as offline’: Paul Fletcher

Communications Minister Paul Fletcher says Australians are “very concerned” about the issue of cyberbullying and online harassment.

He said people are concerned about what it means for not only their kids, but for themselves.

“The rule of law has to apply online as well as offline, and we’re determined to require that of the tech platforms if they are serving Australians on their platforms,” he told Sky News contributor Erin Molan.

“We committed a number of measures on Sunday, building on our tough new Online Safety Act which passed the parliament last year and has already started to take effect, giving new powers to our very important eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, who’s doing such a great job.”
