People in the United Kingdom could face up to fifteen years in prison for repeatedly viewing "far-right propaganda" or "terrorist material" online, according to a report.
According to the Guardian, "A new maximum penalty of 15 years' imprisonment will also apply to terrorists who publish information about members of the armed forces, police and intelligence services for the purposes of preparing acts of terrorism," while the "tightening of the law around viewing terrorist material is part of a review of the government's counter-terrorism strategy following the increasing frequency of terrorist attacks in Britain this year."
Users who view the forbidden content only once by mistake, or out of curiosity, will not be charged, and it is reported that there will also be protections for journalists, academics, and "others who may have a legitimate reason to view such material."
"I want to make sure those who view despicable terrorist content online, including jihadi websites, far-right propaganda and bomb-making instructions, face the full force of the law," declared British Home Secretary Amber Rudd. "There is currently a gap in the law around material [that] is viewed or streamed from the internet without being permanently downloaded."
"This is an increasingly common means by which material is accessed online for criminal purposes and is a particularly prevalent means of viewing extremist material such as videos and web pages," she continued.
