The termination of article 175 of the Law for electronic communications on part of the Constitutional Court in this moment will lead to a vacuum situation where the possibility of any kind of legal monitoring of communications will be denied, a kind of monitoring that would be within the framework of protection of Macedonia’s constitutional order and fight against organized crime and corruption, said the Minister of Interior, Oliver Spasovski in an interview he gave at “Alsat – M” TV.
Spasovski said that this is the first reason, and the second is that the authorized services are deeply into the preparation of a new legal solution within the framework of the system for monitoring of communications that, according to him, will be done by the end of this year.
-We began a national project that we called “Interligentia”. All sorts of analyses were made and four models of reforms were made. We chose one of those models and the legal content is being prepared and in this moment an intersection working group is being formed – said the Minister of Interior.
When asked how the citizens will be convinced that there will not be a misuse with the wiretapping now, Spasovski answered that MoI is implementing a serious control that will prevent any kind of misuse of the system for monitoring of communications.
-These days in Macedonia there is no illegal wiretapping on part of MoI. With the new system, the possibility of misuse will be brought to a minimal level – said Spasovski.
