Agency Criticism of Internet Spying Law

Swedish Radio News reports that the law allowing the Swedish signals intelligence agency FRA to eavesdrop on Internet traffic has been criticised by several important agencies.

The spooks are only allowed to monitor data traffic crossing Sweden’s borders, but in its comment on the legislation the Swedish Post and Telecom Agency points out that domestic communications can be diverted outside a small country like Sweden because of network conditions.

The agency says the government has not explained how the monitoring can be restricted to international traffic.

The Customs Service, on the other hand, complains that under the new law it will be harder to get the results of signals surveillance, because they will have to apply to the government or the military, rather than directly to the FRA, as has been the case.
