Listen: Data From Phones Given To Gardai 50 Times A Day Since 2013.

: 12/10/2018 - 12:46

Details from people's phones were given to the gardai around 50 times every day over the past 5 years.

Figures obtained from the Irish Examiner show more than 92,000 disclosures have been provided to State agencies since 2013.

There are ongoing concerns about our data retention laws following the Graham Dwyer ruling which found our laws breach EU ones.

Elizabeth Farries from the Irish Council for Civil Liberties believes gardai shouldn't be able to get phone data so easily.
