A HUMAN rights group looking to expand laws to protect online users from cyber-harassment will complete a public feedback initiative today and prepare a consultation document it hopes will form the basis for stronger laws to tackle the problem.

The Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR) will compile the views under its PeopleACT initiative and hand it over to internet regulator the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), various ministries and other organisations.
