Proposed Law Opens all Computers for Police

Two ministers have proposed an integrated program to fight jihadism. Their proposal includes the expansion of police powers allowing them to hack into computers belonging to suspected criminals and terrorists.  This proposal would enable police to copy, add and delete information, all without the knowledge of those under investigation.  Police would be able to hack into webcams, microphones, and observe the suspect’s typing in real time.  They would even be permitted to hack into computers belonging to innocent third parties to obtain information about a suspect.  There has been much criticism of these proposed measures.
