More time on Cybercrime Bill

The Joint Select Committee of Parliament has been granted extra time to analyse a number of submissions made to it on the Cybercrime Bill, 2024.

Forty submissions have been received by the committee since it started its work on April 8, and the seven-member body felt it needed more time to deep dive into suggestions and recommendations of Barbadians.

It will now present its findings on June 14.

The revelation comes from the chairman of the committee, Edmund Hinkson, SC, in the wake of the entity being told by this country’s legal fraternity to go back to the drawing board with the Cybercrime Bill.

The committee had been originally given 90 days to conclude its work from March but only started last month and heard its final oral presentation, from Minister of Industry, Innovation, Science and Technology Marsha Caddle, last Monday.(BA)
