Surveillance Bill voted on Thursday 27th November 2015
A Government bill allowing court-ordered lifting of communications privacy went through by a narrow majority of 28 votes in favour on Thursday 26 November 2015. The Bill allows to monitor and gather written electronic communications following a court order, for cases relating to drug trafficking, human trafficking, corruption, homeland security and monetary stability.
House Legal Committee Chairman Sotiris Sampson declared that the Bill will be another powerful weapon in the availability of law enforcement in order for the guilty to serious offenses and the scandal of the economy to be brought before Courts and sentenced for the offenses they have committed.
