The National Information Technology Commission (CNTI) appealed to experts of the sector for a greater participation in the elaboration of the law on computerised crime, protection of data and information security.

CNTI has already elaborated the bills that aim at improving with the contribution of citizens, jurists and experts of the sector.

The bills are found on public consultation since late January, in the www.angola-online.ao site, but at the moment CNTI has only registered five contributions.

CNTI's press attaché, Luísa dos Santos said that it is urgent for citizens to participate in the conclusion of the documents for the later approval of the Cabinet Council.

She added that the documents should have been analysed in March, but due to the feeble collaboration of the population and of experts it was postponed "sine die".

Speaking to ANGOP, Cadete Mondlane an engineer with CNTI stressed that it is urgent to reflect about these laws because the country is growing and the economy is almost totally based on the use of information technologies.
