Government approves legislation broadening powers of military police
The government on Wednesday approved a proposed legislation that broadens the powers of the country’s military police, the spokesman for the government, Martin Ayrer, informed on his Twitter account. Under the proposal, the military police would have the right to use undercover agents, carry out surveillance or use informers. The amendment would also enable military police officers to acquire and process personal data. The bill will now be sent to the lower house for debate.
