Myanmar has introduced a communications bill that allows authorities to wiretap where it concerns national security.
The Ministry of Communications, Posts and Telegraphs was due to submit to parliament the 12-chapter bill on November 7 for approval.
The proposed law includes a provision that paves the way for the central government “to direct authorities concerned to wiretap any information that can threaten national security, rule of law and peace”.
