Belarusian government adopts regulations on computer clubs and internet cafes

Author: Mikhail Doroshevich


On February, 10, 2007 Belarusian Council of Ministers adopted Regulations on Computer Clubs and Internet Cafes Functioning #175.

According to the new regulations Internet cafes owners or their authorized agents must keep an electronic registry of the domain names of the sites accessed by users. The electronic log should contain at least at 12-month history of all connections. State Security agents, police or state control inspectors are authorized to review the log in the cases as listed by legislation.

In cases of suspicion of violations, Internet cafes management should inform law enforcement bodies about the cases.

The computer clubs and Internet cafes are not allowed to use programs propagating the cult of violence, cruelty and pornography, or disseminate banned information. The unsanctioned access to information systems of the national power grid has been outlawed as well.
