The Internet resource "Linkedin" has been blocked in Kazakhstan for a number of violations, Kazpravda.kz reports with reference to the Ministry of Information and Social Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The posting of such materials contradicts not only the requirements of the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan, but also the internal rules of the Internet resource "Linkedin."

Moreover, the Rules for advertising the Internet resource "Linkedin" contain a prohibition on misleading users or providing them with false information, as well as on advertising of gambling.
"In this regard, on the facts of violations revealed by the Ministry, in accordance with the requirements of paragraph 3-1 of Article 41-1 of the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan "On Communications", a notification was sent to the administration of the Internet resource "Linkedin" with the requirement to eliminate the identified violations. However, unfortunately, the administration of the Internet resource "Linkedin" did not take any measures to eliminate violations. In this regard, the Ministry took measures to restrict access to the specified Internet resource in the manner prescribed by Article 41-1 of the Law "On Communications", - reported in the MISD.
At the same time, the ministry added, if the Internet resource "Linkedin" eliminates violations of the law, access will be restored.
