Israeli govt must pass new legislation to continue e-surveillance

May 02, 2020 20:40 IST

Israel's Supreme Court has ruled that the government must pass new legislation if it wants to continue tracking residents' phones to plot the spread of Covid-19 in the country. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's administration bypassed the parliament through emergency regulations and reportedly employed the use of anti-terrorism tech from the Shin Bet domestic security agency. The country's apex court has said work on new law to govern digital contact tracing must start by 30th April and be completed within a few weeks.
