Hemlis – Interview with Linus for Breitband, Deutschlandradio

SeriousSeverity –

Here’s a quote from the UN High Commissioner, addressing the president of the United States of America, Barack Obama:

Mr. President,

The broad scope of national security surveillance regimes in countries including the United States and the United Kingdom, and the impact of these regimes on individuals’ right to privacy and other human rights, continues to raise concern. Laws and policies must be adopted to address the potential for dramatic intrusion on individuals’ privacy which have been made possible by modern communications technology. While national security concerns may justify the exceptional and narrowly-tailored use of surveillance, I would urge all States to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place against security agency overreach and to protect the right to privacy and other human rights.
