The above Act should be repealed forthwith and replaced with a law that is not so heavily weighted against the citizen and in favour of the State. Particularly offensive is the power the police AND OTHER AUTHORITIES such as local authorities have. to use Human Covert Surveillane. This allows the state to use employees such as police to form a relationship (including a sexual one) with a suspect for the purpose of obtaining information from them which they would not otherwise be able to obtain.

Why is this idea important?
In order to stop stop the police and other authorities ie tax authorities, councils etc ( the list is huge)
conning people into believing they are forming a true relationship when in fact, they are using people to get information. This is an abhorrent use of power and is entrapment .
People no longer trust the State because of things like this.
