Australian Prime Minister Turnbull: ‘The Internet cannot be an ungoverned space’

In his address to the Australian Liberal Party, the country’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull warned that the Internet ‘cannot be an ungoverned space‘, as ‘ungoverned spaces pose great risks’. He made these remarks in relation to the use of the Internet by ‘terrorists and extremists’, who use Internet services to ‘spread their poison’. Turnbull’s speech echoed British Prime Minister Theresa May’s remarks, as she pleaded for increased regulation of Internet services after the terror attacks in London.
