Ex-Säpo Boss Against Surveillance Law

Published fredag 13 juni 2008 kl 12.22
Anders Eriksson

The former head of Säpo, Sweden’s security service, has come out against the controverisal plan to increase electronic surveillance in the country to combat terrorism.



Next week, parliament is expected to vote through a new surveillance law which will allow the National Defence Radio establishment, which spies on radio signals from other countries, to monitor telephone and e-mail traffic going in and out of Sweden, including many domestic communications.

Anders Eriksson, who’s today chairman of the newly created Swedish commission on security and integrity protection, told a seminar on Thursday that swedish politicians and authorities have several times overeacted in speeches about the terrorism threat and said the risk of a terrorist attack in Sweden is very low.
