Phone tapping to be legal for crime probes no spying says AG

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas, February 14, 2017 – Phone tapping is to be legal in The Bahamas and the country’s Attorney General calls the ICB or Interception Communications Bill a tremendous stride in the fight against crime while defending that it is only to be used for criminal investigations.AG, Allyson Maynard Gibson, in clarifying rumors that now everyone will be fair game and can be spied upon, defended the legislation and said that is not the case and  that law abiding citizens and residents need not fear the the ICB policy.   “The ICB enhances protection of the privacy of law abiding citizens because it is the Supreme Court (not the Executive) that makes the determination that the communications may be intercepted. This is the first time that Bahamian law places this authority solely in the hands of the independent judiciary.” The watch dog over how the tactic is used and not abused is the Supreme Court which, it is explained, “will ensure that adequate checks and balances are in place to protect rights of privacy on the one hand and combat crime (including cyber crime) on the other.  Any suggestion that this is a “dangerous spying Bill” is false.”The introduction of the legislation now calls for the legislature to consider a revision of the current LDA law or the listening Devices Act, which was crafted in 1972 and is clearly outdated now.The Bahamas joins the worldwide community – including the United States, the United Kingdom, Saint Lucia, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and most recently St. Kitts & Nevis – to enact similar legislation permitting the lawful interception of communications.

Virginia to Hand over Acreage for Ft Monroe Monument to Park Service

first_imgVirginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) on Tuesday is expected to transfer the state’s portion of the property that makes up Fort Monroe National Monument to the National Park Service.The transfer will include 112 acres of the North Beach area on the historic post, located on the Virginia shore of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as the Parade Grounds, Old Quarters 1, Lee’s Quarters and Engineer’s Quarters, reported the Daily Press. The properties are a portion of the entire monument which was established by President Obama four years ago. The monument includes parts of the moat, stone casemate, parade grounds inside the moat and a 235-acre swath of the North Beach area.“The city is happy to see the formal and legal actions finalized that have been agreed to by all parties, and we are excited to see the official park service ownership of the historic parade ground and key buildings,” said Hampton Mayor George Wallace.The Fort Monroe Authority and the National Park Service have been collaborating to ensure a seamless transition of the property. An area known as Dog Beach may not transfer to the park service in the near term as the Army addresses ground contamination there.Separately, the park service has completed the foundation document that will guide the agency’s operation and interpretation of the site. The role of slavery — from its origins to its end — will be a key theme of the monument, according to the story. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
