What the head of the Anti-Corruption Unit says
Who is above the Constitution?
Let’s argue that the ACU chief is right that he ” can tap anyone ” . No, sir. Unless you have very strong evidence to justify taping of private phone conversations.
Extra marital affairs are evidence for phone taping.
Among the most justifiable reasons for taping are: terrorism, international crimes, corruption of high level officials in govt.
But even these reasons would have to be backed with very strong evidence .
Unless we can say : so what if I, the chief of ACU can tap anyone I want.
Unless we can say: every citizen is a suspect or enemy of the state?
is that the state we want to live in?
A very strong stance and condemnation by Amnesty International over the widespread and unlawful arrest and detention of members of the opposition and civil society.
