The Uruguayan Parliament discusses the protection of minors in virtual spaces

Lawmakers from the government coalition and the Broad Front are seeking to reach an agreement in the special committee on innovation, science and technology.

In its last session, the Commission confirmed the necessity of consulting the Telecommunications Services Regulatory Unit to send its written opinion on the initiative presented by the Amplio Front in 2021.

According to Broad Front representative and Committee Chair, Lilian Galland, the proposal was highly appreciated by representatives of the Ministry of the Interior, the Intelligence Secretariat, the e-Government Agency and the Information and Knowledge Society.

He stated in statements to the newspaper “La Diaria” that it is an educational project aimed at educating children, teenagers and their parents in the field of network management.

Representatives in the government coalition object to three articles referring to blocking websites through administrative methods without a judicial decision.

The initiative’s goals include preventing material available in the digital environment from material that “visually represents a child or adolescent engaged in real or simulated sexually explicit conduct.”

Also avoid any representation available on digital platforms of the sexual organs of minors or adolescents primarily for sexual purposes, deception, sexual blackmail, and involuntary exposure to sexual material.
