Government Backs Down on E-Mail Spying

Published måndag 20 februari 2006 kl 11.59
Justice Minister Thomas Bodström

The Swedish government has backed down from a plan to fight terrorism and organized crime that critics said was at the cost of personal freedom and privacy.

Justice Minister Thomas Bodström says the government is having a rethink on the proposal to allow the National Defence Radio Establishment to monitor all telephone calls, SMS text messages, e-mail, and other computer communications passing Sweden’s borders.

In an interview with Swedish Radio News Saturday Bodström said the risk of eavesdropping on innocent people was too great to implement the plan.
