Title:Les atteintes au droit a l'information a la suite des coupures intempestives d'internet en République Démocratique du Congo

Abstract:The reflection on the right of access to information through the internet in the democratic republic of congo has shown that this right is not, in fact, a new right. rather, it stems from the extension to new technologies of information and communication of existing human rights. the protection afforded to it offline by all international treaties and national laws must be protected in the same way online. but to argue that its protection is limited to traditionally known technologies, namely the print media and audio-visual communication, would be pretentious, even dangerous. this restriction could justify all the untimely cuts experienced by congolese citizens. however, these cuts have not been proven to be human rights violations, of which justice is the only one able to remedy them.
