Riyadh: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has banned the posting of online satire/ trolls in social media.

Those who found guilty of distributing such content online will be deemed to disrupt public order, would also be subjected to a fine of three million riyals and a imprisonment up to five years, the Middle Eastern Country's public prosecutor's office said in a statement in Twitter.

'Producing and distributing content that ridicules, mocks, provokes and disturbs public order, religious values and public morals through social media will be considered as a cyber crime', the statement added.
