What followed next was even more incredible: Five hours later, a completely new text entered into discussion and was passed by the Congresswithout any public review. The new text, prepared by Congress member Juan Carlos Eguren, looks like a mix between different cybercrime law projects — not using Ley Beingolea, but instead drawing on a new law project the Ministry of Justice prepared one month ago.
Only three days before, on September 9th, Miguel Morachimo, the leader of the digital rights organization Hiperderechowrote about that draft saying:. There is no mention about why the current regulation of cyber crimes would be inappropriate, nor is it beiingolea how many cases and of what type have been known by the prosecution office or the courts since we have such provisions in our criminal code.

The new formulation of the criminal offense of discrimination — which, according to experts, has been rarely used in its original form — punishes any person who discriminates against one or more person or group of people, or promotes discriminatory acts because of race, religion, sex, genetics, family status, age, disability, language, ethnic and cultural identity, garment, political opinion or opinion of any kind, or economic condition, with the aim of annulling or undermining the recognition, enjoyment, or exercise of a right.

This law is bound to have chilling effects, and its provisions are ripe for abuse by the government. Now that the law has passed, the only hope of stopping its coming into effect is for Peruvian President Ollanta Humala to veto.
A veto would enable a proper public debate of the law including participation by all those who would be affected.
