Some proposed amendments to the information and communications law in Mauritius have sparked debates regarding censorship of social media networks. The Mauritius’ Information and Communication Technologies Authority has published a public consultation document on the control of social networks. According to the BBC, the regulator proposes the creation of a committee to analyse content and an enforcement unit to implement the committee’s decisions. Social media users have criticised what they termed as “abuse” from the authorities with some saying it amounts to spying on the people.
