(DUBLIN, Ire.) JUST IN: Irish police will have the power to compel people to provide passwords for electronic devices when carrying out a search warrant under new legislation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.15: Gardaí will also be required to make a written record of a stop and search: This will enable data to be collected so the effectiveness and use of the powers can be assessed.

BELFAST: Irish police to be given powers over passwords: The change is part of the Garda Síochána Bill published by Irish Justice Minister Heather Humphreys on Monday.

Special measures will be introduced for suspects who are children and suspects who may have impaired capacity.

The bill will bring in longer detention periods for the investigation of multiple offences being investigated together, for a maximum of up to 48 hours.

It will also allow for a week’s detention for suspects in human trafficking offences, which are currently subject to a maximum of 24 hours detention. 

‘Powers and safeguards’

“The law in this area is currently very complex, spread across the common law, hundreds of pieces of legislation, constitutional and EU law,” the minister said. 

“Bringing it together will make the use of police powers by gardaí clear, transparent and accessible. 

“The aim is to create a system that is both clear and straightforward for gardaí to use and easy for people to understand what powers gardaí can use and what their rights are in those circumstances.

“At the same time, where we are proposing to extend additional powers to gardaí, we are also strengthening safeguards. The bill will have a strong focus on the fundamental rights and procedural rights of the accused. 

“I believe this will maintain the crucial balance which is key to our criminal justice system, while ensuring greater clarity and streamlining of Garda powers.”

` British Secret Services ` Threatened ‘ to ` Shut-Down ‘ the `Guardian ‘ as it was Publishing its Expose of US Surveillance ‘

#AceSecurityNews – LONDON – March 27 – British secret services threatened to shut down the Guardian newspaper as it was publishing its exposé of US massive surveillance based on Edward Snowden leaks.

The story was the most difficult piece of reporting the paper has ever done.

“We were threatened that we would be closed down. We were accused of endangering national security and people’s lives. It left us in a very difficult position,” Guardian deputy editor Paul Johnson told the Radiodays http://www.radiodayseurope.com/highlight/guardian%C2%B4s-inside-story-snowden-case Europe conference in Dublin.

A senior civil servant had told the paper’s editor, Alan Rusbridger, that the “prime minister, the deputy prime minister, the foreign secretary, the home secretary and the attorney general have got a problem with you,” Johnson said, as cited by the Irish Times.

The attitude of the British authorities was a sharp contrast to that of the Americans, he said.

In the US Snowden leaks led to a nationwide debate on surveillance and privacy while in the UK the authorities just assumed that national security trumps press freedom.

Plan By Unions For Anti-Austerity March Before The Budget

Ace UK News – Congress, an umbrella group of Irish unions, is urging members to turn out for the protest on October 12. Congress president John Douglas said the gathering will demand an end to public spending cuts.
“The failed policies of austerity have led to excessively high levels of unemployment, increased poverty levels, driven unsustainable income inequalities, increased levels of precarious working and crucially suppressed domestic demand for goods and services by attacking those on low and middle incomes,” he said.
