Justice Nariman, SC bench honoured for Right to Privacy order 10.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Supreme Court judge, Justice R F Nariman, and the constitution bench which delivered the historic ruling recognising privacy as a fundamental right, have been chosen as one of the five global Heroes of Human Rights and Communications Surveillance by a global digital rights advocacy group. "While all nine justices (of the bench) deserve recognition for their heroic judgments, Justice Nariman earns individual recognition for specifically citing to the International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance in his opinion," the group, Access Now, said in a statement. It also accorded special recognition to the other Indian judges in the bench on privacy - then Chief Justice J S Khehar, Justice S A Bobde, Justice J Chelameswar, Justice R K Agrawal, Justice A M Sapre, Justice D Y Chandrachud, Justice S K Kaul and Justice S Abdul Nazeer for "unanimously agreeing to recognise privacy as a fundamental right".

Facebook navigates a global power struggle 4.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
On a muggy, late spring evening, Tuan Pham awoke to the police storming his house in Hanoi, Vietnam. They marched him to a police station and demanded that he hand over his Facebook password. Tuan, a computer engineer, had recently written a poem on the social network criticising how the communist country was run. Tuan's arrest came just weeks after Facebook offered a major olive branch to Vietnam's government.
