Serbia Limits Security Services Eavesdropping

In changes to the law governing the Security Intelligence Agency, parliamentarians decided that eavesdropping and interception of emails will only be possible only under special conditions.

The Serbian parliament on Sunday changed parts of the law to clarify when it is possible and under what specific conditions for the Security Intelligence Agency to eavesdrop and intercept emails or any other form of communication.

The opposition Democratic Party was the only dissenting voice over the changes, calling for apartments to be exempted from special eavesdropping measures. 

But justice minister Nikola Selakovic told the Democrats: “I appreciate your efforts, but it is overloading the text.” 
 
In December 2013, the constitutional court declared three articles in the law unconstitutional. The court left a four-month deadline for legislators to put it in line with the constitution.

The adoption of the changes was delayed due to the formation of the new government after elections in March.
