Gov"t to Tighten Restrictions on Eavesdropping Tactics

Dec 08,1998
The government decided to fortify restrictions on eavesdropping tactics by investigative authorities on December 8.
The government will send the bill to the National Assembly and plans to implement the revised law early next year.
Accordingly, from next year, investigative authorities will not be able to monitor communications of those suspected of committing minor crimes. But they can now legally monitor conversations of those suspected of being involved in organized crime or weapons related crimes.
According to the revised plan, investigative authorities will have to submit a 'letter of intent for eavesdropping' to telecommunication companies while requesting approval from the court.
If investigative authorities do not get approval from the court within 36 hours, the authorities will have to suspend the investigation.
Additionally the penalty for any illegal eavesdropping or publicly disclosing the contents of any eavesdropping has been increased to ten years imprisonment from the current seven year sentence.
