Protests over plans to let military spy on Swedes

Published torsdag 11 januari 2007 kl 13.32

Opposition is growing over the government’s proposal to allow the National Defence Radio Establishment to monitor telephone calls and internet use within Sweden.

The Ministry of Defence department was set up to listen to military radio traffic around the world, primarily from the former Soviet Union, and its work constitutes what many people would consider as being spying.

The new proposal, which is not finalised yet, is to give them increased powers to tackle terrorism and organised crime, but politicians, including some from the Prime Minister’s Conservative Moderates Party, are warning the powers could be abused and people’s privacy could be invaded.

There are also concerns that calls will be tapped as a preventative measure, even when no crime is suspected.
