Parvanov approved the internet surveillance

Following the deputees’ decision to approve the surveillance of internet communication and phone calls in case of suspicion for serious or internet crimes, the Bulgarian president Georgi Parvanov said “yes” to the new surveillance laws in the Law for electronic communication.

The changes in the law were finally approved by the parliament after much debate and the removal of the controversial proposal that could give the Ministry of internal affairs the right to track anyone, anytime.

There are still many voices against this law, because the possibility to mark anyone as an outlaw still remains, and that is a solid ground for surveillance.

The access to web information will be done according to the Law for special surveillance devices and the Criminal code.
