Kazakhstan Again Goes Down Bad Road on Liberty Restrictions

From RT:

“LiveJournal and Liveinternet blogging platforms, along with more than two dozen other web sources, have been closed in Kazakhstan, Interfax news agency quoted a Kazakh court as saying on Friday. The authorities believe the websites to be vectors for “terrorism and religious extremism propaganda”. Earlier, Kazakhstan’s Minister of Communications and Information, Askar Zhumagaliev, announced on his Twitter page that LiveJournal had been closed by decision of the court and gave no further details. The court said the decision had already come into legal force, but could still be appealed. It is not the first time access to LiveJournal has been blocked in the country. Earlier, access to YouTube video hosting was also closed.”
