Courts and scandals


Within a month, as news of the controversial program of U.S. intelligence PRISM flew to the Russian authorities. Yesterday, the Federation Council Committee held a meeting on the development of the information society, where it was decided to send a request to the Prosecutor General to investigate the situation with access NSA USA to the personal data of Russian citizens.

The initiator of the special meeting was Chairman Ruslan Gattarov (pictured below), who said that access a foreign country to the personal data of Russian citizens violates the right to privacy, to personal and family privacy, as guaranteed by the Russian Constitution and the law “On Personal Data”.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the executive and legislative branches, as well as employees of the Russian subsidiary of Microsoft. As with other Internet companies that have offices in the country (such as Apple and Google), then they have ignored the event.

Following the meeting, it was decided to entrust the Russian investigative authorities look into this situation and take the steps necessary to protect our citizens against encroachment on their privacy from abroad. Also, the Council of the Federation, it was decided to create an interagency working group to investigate the incident in order to subsequently conduct the proceedings at the international level.

Why this story could lead until the talk hard, especially when you take into account the actual level of authority of the upper house of the Russian parliament. However, if interested in the situation in the State Duma and the Government, then it is possible that we will have a new series of interesting reports on the state channels. What else can distract the man in the street of the expected devaluation of the ruble, but stories about the terrible corporations spying for Russian citizens?
