Les détenus peuvent-ils exiger un accès à Internet ?

La CEDH n’impose pas une obligation générale de fournir aux détenus un accès à Internet ou à des sites Internet. Pour autant, en fonction des cas particuliers, le refus de l’administration de laisser un détenu qui ne présente pas de dangerosité particulière accéder à des informations spécifiques, peut violer l’article 10 de la Convention.

La CEDH considère que la violence domestique n’est pas limitée aux seuls faits de violence physique mais inclut, entre autres, la violence psychologique ou le harcèlement. Elle juge que la cyberviolence est un aspect de la violence à l’encontre des femmes et des filles et peut se présenter sous diverses formes dont les violations informatiques de la vie privée, l’intrusion dans l’ordinateur de la victime et la prise, le partage et la manipulation des données et des images, y compris des données intimes.

Gaming regulation in Switzerland

A revision of Switzerland’s Constitution in March 2012 triggered a new debate on online gambling in the country. Switzerland might very well be the next attractive online gambling market on the European continent as the Federal Council seems aware of the need of a commercially viable legal offer to efficiently fight against the black market. How Switzerland plans to achieve its plans shall be outlined in the coming months, but this article already reveals a few guidelines.

Belgian online gambling at a critical moment further to European Commission action

So far, the Belgian online gambling market’s attractiveness was somewhat affected by two restrictions contained in the Belgian Gaming Act: the offline requirement further to which online operators need to hold an equivalent land-based license to operate online and the numerus clausus principle imposing a limitation of the number of offline licenses granted. After the European Commission’s release of the Action Plan on online gambling in October 2012, Belgium has been summoned by the European Commission to justify its gambling legislation.

Legality of the black list and blocking measures in belgium

In order to enforce the Belgian Gaming Act (BGA) and give the regulator the means to efficiently sanction illegal gambling, the Belgian Gaming Commission (BGC) has published a list of illegal gambling operators on its web site available at http://www.gamingcommission.fgov.be/website/jsp/main.jsp?lang=FR. Services providers such as ISPs or financial institutions which have signed a protocol with the BGC are to block all transactions and access to illegal web sites marked on the black list. However, the legal grounds alleged by the Gaming Commission for the publication of the black list (Article 48, §2, 5°) clearly state that measures undertaken to ensure player protection (such as issuance of a black list) shall be set by Royal Decree. No such Royal Decree was adopted. Thus, the legality of the black listing and blocking measures deriving there from have been questioned until a decision of the President of the Brussels Court of First Instance of 13 June 2012 in the BwinParty case.

Online Gambling in Belgium further to the approval of the new Royal Decrees of execution

The Royal Decrees of execution of the new Belgian Gaming Act have been approved by the government in a session of 16 June 2011 and should officially be published in the course of this month. They foresee the requirements to be met in order to pursue online gambling activities in Belgium and shall enter into force on 1 September 2011. Therefore, it is the BGC’s opinion that sanctions could be pushed through as from the moment when operators have had the chance to legalise their online gambling activities.
