According to Reuters, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev has signed into law new controls on the Internet. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which Kazakhstan is supposed to chair in 2010, has called the law repressive. The legislation will allow local courts to block websites, including foreign ones, and to class blogs and chatrooms as media.
So the good news is, Kazakhstan considers us journalists. The bad news is, Kazakhstan considers us journalists. Not the safest profession to have in that part of the world.
