Estonia Plans to Scrap Phone-Tap Rule Exemption, Paeevaleht Says

Estonia’s Justice Ministry plans to scrap an exemption from phone-tapping rules that allows police to eavesdrop on calls without clearance from prosecutors and a judge, Eesti Paeevaleht reported.

The ministry wants to make it mandatory in all cases to obtain prosecutors’ permission beforehand, the newspaper said. The exemption, which allows prosecutors’ and courts’ permission to be sought after the event if tapping is deemed necessary during the night, has been used five times this year out of a total of about 900 tapping cases, Paeevaleht said, adding that new rules will probably come into force from January 2013.
