Say It Ain’t So, Sweden

From BBC News:

Sweden’s parliament has approved controversial new laws allowing authorities to spy on cross-border e-mail and telephone traffic.

The country’s intelligence bureau will be able to scan international calls, faxes and e-mails…

“By introducing these new measures, the Swedish government is following the examples set by governments ranging from China and Saudi Arabia to the US government’s highly criticised eavesdropping programme,” said Peter Fleischer, of Google.
