Armenian police will be given the opportunity to independently  wiretap citizens

ArmInfo.Armenian police will be given the opportunity to independently listen to telephone conversations of citizens passing as suspects in a particular case.  The National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia at the meeting on  December 10 in the first reading introduced amendments to the law "On  operational-search activity".

According to the co-author of the presented document, MP of the My  Step faction Armen Khachatryan, taking into account the  operative-investigative powers of the police and the availability of  an operational-technical specialized unit, the bill proposes at the  legislative level to allow control and wiretapping of citizens'  telephone calls using available technical means. In this, according  to the lawmaker, it will be possible to save the time spent on  contacting the National Security Service to ensure that they have the  required funds, and to carry out organizational work. The  parliamentarian also explained that today the police are forced to  make a similar request to the NSS, which already has a busy schedule.  According to Armen Khachatryan, this bill will allow, to a certain  extent, to remove from the NSS a number of obligations that are not  within its powers, which will reduce the level of workload,  increasing its efficiency.
