Cyber crime is a growing scourge for Pakistan particularly in the absence of a well-drafted and comprehensive cyber crime law. In 2007, Prevention of Electronic Crimes Ordinance came out in public just after its approval from the Cabinet and when it was to be sent to the National Assembly of Pakistan, to be approved as a law. It was largely prepared in silos with the purpose to curb electronic crime; however, it was met with dissent from individuals as well as businesses. Prevention of Electronic Crimes Ordinance shortly referred to as PECO was labeled “Draconian” due to its major flaws and lacunas.
