Does govt fear 'fake news', or the truth? In this sense, legal measures are necessary to prevent the harm done by the spread of fake news. The legislation, known as the Computer Crime Act 2017, was supposedly enacted to prevent computer hacking, data theft, or spam or false data. The Public Assembly Act imposes severe restrictions on political assembly, leading to the subsequent arrests of a number of protesters. With its success in gagging free speech thus far, why does the regime feel it needs to resort to more oppressive measures?
