Increased Authority to Listen in to Mobile Phones

The government is proposing a change in the Telecommunications Law which would give various authorities more possibilities to track the position of mobile phones, to listen in to them and to interrupt conversations. If this law is passed, it will allow use of this procedure not only after a major crime has been committed, but also as a way to prevent such a crime. Nowadays authorities are allowed to listen in only if they have special permission from the Attorney-General’s office.
