This decision carries a 4,200 dinar fine and a deportation order in addition to prison servitude. Serious claims are at the center of the case in question, which is known as the “Consumer Protection Hacker” case.

The court cases highlighted how strict regulations are becoming more and more necessary to stop these destructive activities and safeguard the public’s financial interests and rights. The court’s ruling highlights the need to preserve consumer protection laws in the digital era while acting as a deterrent to cybercrimes and putting the defendants in jail.
