The British government began considering a plan to reform the Official Secrets Act.
According to media reports, journalists who report embarrassing news to the government could face up to 14 years in prison. The law dealing with foreign agents would also apply to journalists who divulge classified government information.
Media reports say the new law would deprive journalists of the right to defend themselves against disclosure of classified information, while the 1989 Act is being reviewed to bring it in line with the requirements of the current Internet age.
According to media reports, human rights organizations and the Law Commission have put forward suggestions to improve the government’s proposed reforms.
Media reports say the proposed law could have led to action against Matt Hancock for publishing kissing photos.
It is believed that videos and pictures of former British Health Minister Matt Hancock kissing his aide came to light after which he had to wash his hands of the ministry.
