Thoughts on the new Surveillance Bill

IE: Thoughts on the new Surveillance Bill

This week the Department of Justice published a Surveillance Bill which, if enacted, will allow Gardaí to break into private property to place covert video cameras and audio bugs, to plant tracking devices on cars and to use evidence gathered in this way in criminal prosecutions. The Bill – which was already on the legislative programme but was rushed forward after the murders in Limerick of Shane Geoghegan and Roy Collins – is intended to place existing Garda practices on a statutory basis in line with Ireland’s obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights.
