Denmark looks to block access to online 'terror propaganda'
The Danish Justice Ministry on Thursday released a plan that it said would prohibit radicalization but which could lead to free speech concerns.
The ministry announced a four-point plan that includes blocking access to "websites with propaganda for terror organizations".
In a law proposal submitted to parliament, the ministry writes that decisions on blocking certain websites would be decided "by the court after a police request".
Other elements of the proposal include making the dissemination of terrorist propaganda a criminal offence and forcing radicalized inmates to undergo a so-called 'exit programme' as a condition of their parole.
