Number of Internet Tappings by Government Increases Five-Fold

The number of tapping cases by Justice Authorities and the police increased five-fold in 2012 to 16,676 cases from 3,331 in 2011. The minister added that in 2012, 25,487 telephones were tapped, which represented an increase of 3% over 2011. Minister Ivo Opstelten of Justice and Security (Liberal Party) said that this is not identical to the number of people tapped, because some of them have multiple numbers.
