EU make stricter rules to tackle online hate speech.

BRUSSELS, March 9 (KUNA) -- European Union (EU) justice ministers discussed on Friday ways to deal with online hate speech and terrorism material. Speaking at a press conference after the meeting, EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova said she informed the ministers about the recommendation that the European Commission adopted in this regard. "We will continue our work on code of conduct, we will work on more transparency and we will make stricter rules for online content related to terrorism because there we want to have it deleted within one hour," she said. Jourova noted that the ministers agreed that tackling radicalization must be a common effort in the EU and which is bearing fruit. On her part, Tsetska Tsacheva, Bulgarian Minister for Justice , whose country holds the current EU Presidency, told the joint press conference that they discussed a number of extremely important topics that are of interest not only for EU member states but also for all European citizens. The meeting achieved a general approach on their rules for fighting fraud and the counterfeiting of non-cash means of payment such as mobile payments and bank cards, she said. She noted that this kind of fraud is used for funding organized crime and terrorist actions. (end) nk.gb
