Still-President and Former-Minister of Defense Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, after claiming his government faced, “21,000 false rumors in three months,” has come up with a law allowing for the prosecution of anyone with more than 5,000 followers spreading what he’s dubbed as, “False news.”

The new law will impose fines, and demand licensing from the Supreme Council for the Administration of Media for websites over that magically influential number of 5,000.
PDers, do you remember when 2018 turned into 1984?
