MAI wants a new “Big Brother” law

The Internal Affairs Ministry (MAI) considers that the Constitutional Court decision on the unconstitutional character of the PrePay cards law, a decision taken on Tuesday, “is liable to negatively influence the concrete results of operative work” conducted by MAI structures. Moreover, MAI officials pointed out that the ministry will support the drafting, “as urgently as possible,” of a law that would take into account the Court’s observations on emergency ordinance 111/2011 concerning electronic communications. “The Romanian Police’s judicial practice shows that the members of crime groups use PrePay cards that they replace at brief intervals in order to gain added protection,” MAI informs. According to ‘Jurnalul National’ daily, the heads of the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI), the National Anticorruption Directorate (DNA) and the Department for the Investigation of Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) have warned that the Constitutional Court’s repeal of the “Big Brother” law will create problems for the activities that have to do with national security and the combating of organized crime and corruption.
