German foreign minister Klaus Kinkel has vowed that the German government will pass laws to stop far right extremists using the Internet as a secret meeting place.
He said Germany is working on a law to clamp down on extremists using the Internet. "In an alliance of decency with the police and justice authorities, our citizens stand firm against the racist violence of the neo-Nazis," he told a German-Jewish forum organised by the Bertelsmann Foundation.
Last November, Bonn approved a bill to block Nazi propaganda and pornography on the Internet while protecting Internet users? privacy. Civil liberties laws mean other countries are likely to find it difficult to pass similar legislation.
