Italy: Wiretapping Bill Advances

Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s conservative government won a vote in the Senate on Thursday on a bill that restricts wiretaps and fines media organizations that report information derived from wiretaps used in criminal investigations before the case goes to trial. The bill, which now goes to the lower house for final approval, would require a three-judge panel, instead of a single judge, to approve a wiretap; limit the number of days for a wiretap; and require special authorization to listen in on priests.
