Censoreship of the Czech internet

President Miloš Zeman has signed a law tightening the regulation of the betting industry. The bill gives the Ministry of Finance the power to block selected websites, which critics say represents censorship of the internet. However, Finance Minister Andrej Babiš says his officials will only use their new powers to order internet service providers to block sites offering unauthorised gambling. For their part, internet providers say such actions would be expensive and mean increased charges for their clients.
