Saudi government gets tough on cybercrime and criminals

According to the Saudi cabinet, there will be new harsher penalties for committing cybercrime inside the country. A bill that was passed on Monday, would charge people who commit crimes online with a $133,000 fine, and one year in prison. The cabinet said in a statement that it passed a proposal from the Shura assembly that was submitted last year.
