Tehran, YJC. Overseeing committee member says if the proper application is provided to remove undesirable pages, social websites will be unblocked.
The Criminal Case Determination Committee is a body which
decides what content on the internet is improper to be given access to in Iran.
It is responsible for the ban of allegedly harmful websites which include
social ones from Facebook to Youtube to Twitter.
Ramazan Ali Sobhanifar committee member in interview with the
Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency said that if "immoral” pages can be
removed, access to social websites will be granted.
"We will try to give people access to those parts of social websites which can
be used. Then we will remove those parts to which there is harm content and
which are in disagreement to our culture,” he asserted.
He further stated that a technical workgroup is being formed
to investigate the possibility and circumstances of intelligent filtering.
