Georgia’s President Giorgi Margvelashvili has vetoed the Government-backed bill on surveillance that allows the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) to retain ‘key’ access to surveillance.

The draft-bill was approved by Parliament at its third and final reading yesterday after 73 Members of Parliament (MPs) voted in favour and 30 voted against.

The President proposed an alternative version of the draft bill, which noted the MIA should be deprived of capabilities of having direct access to telecom operators’ networks, or the “key”.
