Disputing unlawful surveillance of your communications
Let’s say that you find out that your electronic communications have been unlawfully wiretapped by the public institutions, without the proper approval of a court. You should know that the Law on Interception of Telecommunications sets out some procedures and internal mechanisms of control to make sure that your rights are not violated. The Law specifically outlines that the protection of the rights of those under surveillance is based on respect for human rights and freedoms as foreseen in the constitution and European Convention for Human Rights and the Constitution of Kosovo. Also according to the law, your electronic communications may not be wiretapped unless you are under investigation for a criminal procedure or represent a threat to the national security of the country, and if there is no court approval. Any other wiretapping conducted unofficially and without such legal basis could allow you to seek an investigation and file a lawsuit against the perpetrators.
