Although recent news indicates that some prisoners have mobile phones that are sometimes used to access the Internet, the Ministry of Justice has just announced that French prisons will use new “high-tech” jammers. Your cost has not been stated. After Manuel Valls announced after the Charlie Weekly attack, Christiane Taubira announced the outline of the plan entitled “Counter-Terrorism Justice” (PDF) yesterday. In the next three years, a total of 181 million euros will be released-of which 110 million euros will be released in 2015. Therefore, the prison administration will benefit from a protection fund of 43 million euros, part of which will be used to “populate high-tech mobile phone jammers”. However, Vendome Square has not yet provided a deployment plan.
According to Agence France-Presse, seal defenders said that the new equipment designed by Thales is being tested in Ile-de-France. These will be more effective than previously used portable jammer because their range will be more targeted.
Last month, the Minister of Justice answered a parliamentary question that the currently used “especially technical” jamming devices are subject to considerable restrictions. Christiane Taubira explained: “Due to the rapid development of communication technology, some existing equipment will soon become obsolete, and jammers covering a large area do not meet hygiene standards. If the exemption is greatly increased Power, then the prison is very important, so regardless of the inconvenience caused to the residents or residents, if the prison management department is near the prison, it will violate the rules and therefore be in an illegal situation. “Not to mention the “very expensive” of these jammers. Configured.
It should be noted that in addition to these jammers, computer experts and “clock and digital control” experts are also set up, and there is no further detail at all. The judiciary received another 56 million euros in three years. Part of the money should be used to strengthen its IT resources. The ministry explicitly mentioned procedures such as “remote computer search, data collection” (especially through the latest anti-terrorism laws). Even “new technology of genetic analysis and electronic rotation technology”. The case is incomplete because the executive insisted that “these measures must be implemented in a legal context that adapts to new threats.” The Secret Service Act, which is expected to be submitted to Congress next month, provides an opportunity to review communications interception laws. Some MPs hope to see the scope of interception extended to certain prisoners’ confidential telephones.
