Police able to monitor all mobile phones
Norwegian police will soon be able to monitor all cellular phones, including GSM.
The two major net operators, Telenor and NetCom have been ordered to install equipment which will make it possible to make recordings of conversations.
A spokesman for the Department of Justice says this is done to fight serious crime.
He ads that this will in no way be a threat to the judicial rights of ordinary people, and that the aim is to hit the big operators in the traffic with narcotics. (NRK)
