Justice ministry staff banned from Wikipedia

The justice ministry has banned its 30,000 workers from using the online encyclopedia Wikipedia after magazine Intermediair reported that staff were editing entries in work time.

While most of the changes found were neutral, some involved changing the profiles of criminals and altering political party positions. Others were obscene, Intermediair said.
Access to all Wikipedia sites has now been blocked while the ministry reviews its policies.
