Ruth Moschner on criminal prosecution of cybercrime

The 45-year-old has had bad experiences with sexual messages directed at her on social media. Something like that shouldn’t go unpunished, she says.

Berlin – The television presenter Ruth Moschner (45) has appealed to the federal government to combat cybercrime more sharply.

“Anyone who does not have to face any consequences for a crime online becomes blunted,” wrote Moschner in an open letter to the interior and justice ministries and the Berlin public prosecutor’s office published on Tuesday.

She cited her own experience of receiving repeated, unsolicited direct sexual messages from multiple users on her professional Instagram account. Moschner cited the vulgar and insulting formulations.

Reporting channels for complaints are simplified

She reported the news – the investigation was therefore discontinued because a perpetrator could not be identified. According to Moschner’s letter, the network did not release the data. She stressed that it was important that the amendment to the Network Enforcement Act went into effect in February as planned. “I consider it imperative that this standard come into force, as I unfortunately had to experience for myself that the current criminal prosecution of cybercrime is a sign of poverty in this country.”

The Network Enforcement Act applies to all operators of social networks. Among other things, the reporting channels for complaints will be simplified in the future. Companies should be obliged to provide all the necessary data, including computer addresses, to identify suspected criminals. In the future, it will no longer be enough for social networks to simply delete criminal content. With the reform of the Network Enforcement Act, they must be reported to the Federal Criminal Police Office. dpa
