Local Authorities The RIPA Act Telephone Tapping

Comment 6th July 2010

Local Authorities and Councils should be banned from being able to use the RIPA Act to spy on the people they are supposed to be serving. For example, the local authorities have the power to tap telephones without the knowledge or consent of the owner of the telephone, follow people around using outside private investigation agencies, pay Google fees to promote the names of certain people to the top of the front page of searches.

Why does this matter?

It appears that local authorities are setting themselves up as a law enforcement agency. They even advertise job positions for ‘enforcement officers’.
