Cyber law welcomed in AROB

Internet users, especially professionals and business houses, are proud that the law is the brainchild and baby of the current member for Central Bougainville and Minister for Communications, Jimmy Miringtoro.

The Minister has been highly praised, especially on social media. A group called the Voice of Bougainville has commended the Minister for a job well done.

A youth leader in central Bougainville, Allan Gioni, told Loop PNG that scams, pornography and other illegal stuff will be clamped down now.
