Germany: Govt. to spy on personal messaging as stringent surveillance laws announced

Recommended Posts

Germany will extend its terror defence strategies, said Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere in Dresden on Wednesday, with authorities set to increase surveillance on personal messaging devices, including WhatsApp.

SOT, Thomas de Maiziere, Interior Minister of Germany (German):

"The security services need to be able to do legally what they can do technically on the Internet. We cannot allow factual legal black holes regarding the prosecution of crimes on the Internet. That’s why we are determined to counter that. This means, for example, that the authorities need to be legally capable to intercept information and messages on messenger services under the same premises."

SOT, Thomas de Maiziere, Interior Minister of Germany (German):

"In many cases we are dealing with end-to-end encryptions, which means that we need to enter at the end or the beginning of a conversation rather than intercept inbetween. That is obviously much more complicated but needs to be made possible. We need the legal framework for that, and namely telephone tapping; this means to enter at the source of communications by manipulating a keyboard for instance. The second instrument is the so-called online search which is subjected to even fiercer legal pre-conditions comparable to those for an (electronic) eavesdropping operation. This will give the authorities the opportunity to intercept online communications on a case-to-case basis."

SOT, Thomas de Maiziere, Interior Minister of Germany (German):

"We must not leave any security loopholes through different powers regarding the prevention of threats to public safety. We cannot have different safety zones [within Germany]. Therefore I welcome the fact that the federal states have agreed to develop a new draft police law with the assistance of my entity [Interior Ministry]."

SOT, Thomas de Maiziere, Interior Minister of Germany (German):

"The president of the BKA together with his employees and colleagues from the federal states have developed a new assessment system called ‘RISKANT,’ which is designed to predict threats more accurately based on certain criteria and categories that will be worked out together. There will be a four-eye model between the federal states that is immediately affected and those which are not. All of the aforementioned will be implemented starting from July 1. This is a big progress. However, I don’t want to give the wrong impression… a human threat cannot be predicted reliably by mathematical formula."

SOT, Thomas de Maiziere, Interior Minister of Germany (German):

"In the second stage - and this is even more important - we will discuss and implement the necessary measures in a joint anti-terror centre based on a joint assessment of the respective threat and within the boundaries of the respective legal framework. The result is that the operative treatment in federal state A will be the same as in federal state B. This was not possible to this extent to this date, as we have seen in the case of [Anis] Amri."
