  • [01] Wire Tapping & Illegal Videoing a Capital Offence

    19 Feb 2008 18:16:00

    By Nasos Bratsos

    The legislation will soon change on wire tapping and illegal videoing. An amendment soon to be included in the Justice Ministry bill will transform wire-tapping and illegal videoing to a capital offence. An announcement issued by the Ministry of Justice describes the recent wire-tapping and illegal videoing cases a brutal violation of privacy and the civilians personal data. Justice Minister Sotiris Hatzihakis sent a letter to Supreme Court Prosecutor Georgios Sanidas, demanding the strict implementation of law on privacy that constitutes the fundamental element of the peoples personality. A special amendment soon to be included on a relevant bill of the Justice Ministry with the prime ministers approval will transform wire-tapping and illegal videoing to capital offence.

    [02] Musharraf Refuses to Back Out

    The ruling party has accepted its defeat in the parliamentary elections, while Benazir Bhuttos party is leading. However, Pervez Musharraf is refusing to back out. Meanwhile, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and a leading opposition lawyer has asked for the two opposition parties that have defeated the ruling party to cooperate in order to get rid of Musharrafs dictatorship. Sharif told reporters in the eastern city of Lahore earlier that Musharraf has said he would quit when people tell him. People have now given their verdict. At the same time, a spokesman for Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf on Tuesday dismissed calls for the former general to quit after his allies conceded defeat in crucial parliamentary elections.

    They are way off in their demands, presidential spokesman Major General Rashid Qureshi. This is not the election for president. President Musharraf is already elected for five years, Qureshi said.

    Finally, the US State Department described Mondays election as a "step toward the full restoration of democracy".
