Six countries hear calls without warrants
June 9 , 2014
The New York Times reports that several countries access customer calls whenever they wish to. A Vodaphone rep mentions in a 40,000-word report that 29 nations requested for content thousands of times and six of them have a direct link.
The telecom company didn't name the countries but said this practice is risky for employees and government agencies should stop tapping into calls directly without a warrant.
The Guardian notes that this report is the most comprehensive one and shows how governments spy on people.
