  • Kadri Arifi

Abstract

The sophisticated forms of the organized crime, the high level of risk, complexity and threatening potential of the terrorism, impose the need (among other measures) for the application of covert investigative measures, among other the interception of telecommunications in order to prevent and combat these threats. Measures and traditional methods used by security institutions and law enforcement agencies do not provide adequate results and this raises the need and necessity for application of covert measures. In particular, the application of covert investigative measures for the security services as a measure, is necessary and essential for early detection and prevention of activities that affect the national security, while for the law enforcement agencies, the covert measures are used as a prevention and investigation measure of serious criminal acts and terrorism, but also as a measure to provide evidence for investigative processes. There is no doubt about the high sensitivity that the application of covert measures has in relation to human rights and freedom, respect and protection of which is the duty of the state and represents not an easy challenge for several reasons. In this regard, the application of covert measures should be limited by the law and their application in accordance with the law is a precondition for respecting human rights and freedom.
