SUDAN

‘Immoral’ content is blocked in Sudan and the strict IT Crime Act has resulted in a number of arrests and prosecutions of internet users.

The 2015 amendment to the 2004 Press and Printed Press Materials Law and 2007 IT Crime Act aim to regulate online media and internet use.

The country’s Cyber Jihadist Unit, established in 2011, works to monitor content on internet sites. Internet penetration is currently 27% and mobile penetration is 71%. Infrastructure development is quite poor due to Sudan’s suffering economy.
