House speaker urges tougher approach on Internet threats

Rome, May 17 - Italian House Speaker Laura Boldrini on Thursday urged for more action to be taken to prevent threats to women being made over the Internet, saying that violence carried out through the Web is not less serious than that carried out in person due to its "amplifying" powers. Boldrini was making an introductory speech at a conference taking place in Rome on violence against women. Fighting Internet violence "doesn't mean gagging, it doesn't mean that the law kills the freedom of the Web. It simply means that the laws that already exist are applied on the Web. Today false identities and servers located on the other side of the world block investigations", Boldrini said.
