Abusively quoting a pioneer of civil society, in the person of the Honorable Laurent Batumona with whom we associated General Amisi Tango Four and Azarias Ruberwa in a strange process diametrically opposed to his natural convictions, those of pacifist democrats, the law were overtaken by valiant elements of the Police. The Deputy Prime Minister of Justice and Keeper of the Seals, Me Célestin Tunda ya Kasende, knowing the values of the Honorable Batumona, brought this incredible case to the Council of Ministers in order to foresee the need for a legal arsenal which can help combat cybercrime and also cyberpornography in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
