Minister: police late hosters not immediately pick sites offline




The government says no sites by web hosts to allow offline fetch without the intervention of a judge. Writes Secretary Klaas Dijkhoff in response to parliamentary questions. However, the government is actively pursuing discussions with webhosters if it appears that they are working cybercrime in hand.

Hacker In April showed that the police together with the hosters ‘too little’ do against cybercrime ever written. The letters she wanted to make clear what providers they possibly do wrong. Initially it seemed that the government also sent for offline sites, but this is true according Dijkhoff not.

In answer to parliamentary questions from Kees Verhoeven D66 writes the Secretary of State that the police initially making calls. During the conversations she tries webhosters ‘awareness’ to bring about cybercrime they might facilitate. “It is expected to take steps independently from this awareness hosting providers,” says Dike Hoff.

Dijkhoff denies that the police let sites get offline immediately. That only happens when he says the magistrate gives her consent during a criminal trial. However, the police during interviews with tips out there in the industry to keep cybercrime. The example involve criminal matters as hosting malware and child pornography.
