Is Lebanon cracking down on government critics?

Activists say they are increasingly being summoned by the Cyber Crimes Bureau for criticising the government on social media.

Online critics of Lebanon‘s political leaders say they are coming under increasing pressure. Several social media users have been detained and interrogated for the content of their posts.

Activists say they are over-policed, particularly when discussing topics like religion and politics.

Lebanon’s constitution guarantees freedom of expression, but human rights campaigners worry that those freedoms are being rolled back.
