Justice minister Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir’s bill on sexual privacy was yesterday approved as an Act of Alþingi with 49 votes in favour. Prime minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir said she especially celebrates the new law because the threat online is bigger than ever.

The justice minister also expressed satisfaction that the law passed, and means as much as four years in prison for people who produce, share, or display images or text of a nude or sexual nature of somebody else without their permission.
