Snooping Law Vote Wednesday

Published tisdag 21 oktober 2008 kl 10.28
Demonstration against the FRA Law

The Swedish parliament is expected to approve on Wednesday legislation that would make it easier for the police to monitor telephones and read e-mail.

The legislation to expand and make permanent anti-espionage measures comes despite widespread opposition to the government’s earlier law giving the FRA signals intelligence agency the right to monitor e-mail, text messages, and telephone traffic.

The anti-espionage law was originally a temporary measure passed during the Cold War in 1952.

It has subsequently been extended, and over the years has been used not only to snoop on Soviet spies, but also on leftist sympathizers, environmental activists, and right wing extremists.
