The establishment of the Review Stake Powers is part of the amendment to the Law on the Intelligence and Security Services, which modernises the law from 2002 according to the ministers. ‘Research Engagement interception “by the intelligence services will not take place if the minister and the new independent commission grant permission, the security of which is added to the bill.

The most important change that the proposal brings , it is unfocused may drain the cable. This extension of the powers of the intelligence services met with objections from critics who speak of a trawl of the internet. The ministers defended by proposing the extension that “now almost all data streams – telephony, Internet, e-mail and social media – run by cable. “Even terrorists who want to carry out attacks in Europe and compete in foreign conflict areas, make frequent use of it, for example, recruitment and command and control,” said the ministers.

The new guarantee citizens’ privacy would be protected as well as possible, they ask. “Deployment of powers takes place targeted, advance with an independent, mandatory testing and monitoring during deployment and after.”
