Filter of Twitter and Facebook can be removed \ Judiciary body does not have permission to make decision in this topic

Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency – Ali Motahhrai Second vice-chairman of the Iranian Parliament about continuing the filtration of some social networks such as Twitter and Facebook said: Filtering of these networks should be temporary and related to the times they are harmful.

"As respects filtration of the networks was done after post 2009 presidential election demonstrations and now my impression is such that the filtrations and the constraints are related to the same period of time and there is no longer any difficulties and barriers for using the websites; meanwhile the supreme leader and lots of cabinet members and officials are members of such social networks", declared the current Second Deputy of the Parliament of Iran.

"Of course the fundamental solution is setting up National Information Networks and internal social networks sooner and sooner and also delivery and providing high speed and low cost services so that people do not refer to external social networking or they refer but in less abundance" said the Iranian politician who represents Tehran, Rey, Shemiranat, Pardis and Eslamshahr electoral district in the Parliament of Iran since 2008.

"The filters should be removed for all people not for nobles; the relevant broker and responsible to remove the filters, is the committee that determines the extensive criminal content tabs in cyberspace (workgroup to determine the instances of criminal contents in cyberspace) and this organization should review and revise in the issue", stated the head of Sadra Publications.

"Responsible for this topic is the abovementioned workgroup not the judiciary body, if the workgroup detoxifies the filters and destroys them the judiciary body could not barricade or prevent", declared the current Second Deputy of the Parliament of Iran referring to the statements of Justice Deputy of Attorney General "Twitter will be uncensored not at all", declared the philosophy teacher of University of Tehran.

"The Judiciary body can't interdict the networks and just can investigate and respond to the complaints so it is not acceptable that for the sake of the impression of the social networks on post 2009 presidential election demonstrations, the defiltration will not be done due to the circumstances have been liquidated".

"Rules such as the filterings and satellite bans should be revised and reviewed due to the philosophy of these sentences or codification of laws were the special conditions that they are not available now; in fact the profitable usage of the phenomena should be noted by training of religious community, the society itself should avoid and abstain the risks and losses of these phenomena which are like double-edged sword".

"It is impossible to make the goodness governor by force of law in society; Sometimes there is no need to law and should be internalized a right thing by proper training and reform of popular culture; banning all the media so that people receive the information from only one channel, this is exactly the way of communist governments behaved – informing the community just by a single wave radio – they were not able to maintain the structure."

Internet censorship in Iran has been increasing. In the first few years of the 21st century, Iran experienced a great surge in Internet usage. As of 2013, Iran has 46 million Internet users with a penetration rate of 61.57%.

As of 2012, an average of 27% of internet sites were blocked at a given time and as of 2013 almost 50% of the top 500 visited websites worldwide were blocked, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus. The blocked sites have a wide range of topics including health, science, sports, news, and shopping.

At the beginning of March 2012, Iran began implementing an internal Intranet. This effort is partially in response to Western actions to exploit its Internet connectivity such as the Stuxnet cyberattack which have fueled suspicions of foreign technologies. The government's response has included requiring the use of Iranian email systems, blocking popular webmail services, inhibiting encryption use by disabling VPNs and HTTPS, and banning externally developed security software.
