Question One Yes,We agree with the Legal interception as Eyrie has ratified the Budapest Convention and introduced a provision into its Criminal Law
Question 1 Part 2 Legal interception should be carried according to prevailing law of the country and Protocols of Police Department. Moreover, if it concerns another country also, there should be reciprocity and harmonisation of the Laws of the two countries. In the present case, Eyrie Police acted without a prior indepth investigation.
Question 2 (i) Personal data should be obtained only for one or more specified and lawful purposes and shall not be further processed in any manner incompatible with that purpose- Eyrie Police obtained a warrant to intercept Jaimie phone calls but used the same warrant to seize his computer. Furthermore, the Police was impinging on the Fundamental Human Rights and Freedom.

Question 4 Sri Lanka and Botswana have not got a Data Protection Act. The draft Bill is still in drafting stage. Kenya and Mauritius have got theirs. Mauritius since 2004 and Kenya in 2012.
Question 4 The DPA of Mauritius has been proclaimed since 2004 and needs to be updated to meet requirements of new technologies being introduced. Consequently, it is envisaging to accede to Budapest Convention and Convention 108. Our Copyright Act dates back to 1997 and we are coming with a new one as well as the Intellectual Property Rights which is in drafting stage.
