+ - Thai government accuses mobile operator of bugging

Submitted by

patiwat writes "Many Slashdot readers are aware of the controversy surrounding a government's right to tap telephone calls. But the Thai government has a different dilemma: it has accused a Singapore-owned mobile operator of tapping the calls of senior junta officials, and relaying them to Singapore. The operator has denied all accusations. The IT Minister (the subject of a previous Slashdot article) has thrown his hands into the air and said that mobile phone bugging can't be prevented. The junta's solution: using walkie-talkies. If a government can't even prevent tapping, how safe are your mobile phone conversations?"
