PARIS, July 26 – France aims to prepare a law on anti-terrorist measures by the end of August after the attacks in London and Egypt, the Interior Ministry said on Tuesday.
Following the bombings in London on July 7, Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy said France planned to reinforce its information-gathering procedures and crack down on militants.
The new law would include measures on video surveillance and the storage of telephone data, a ministry spokesman said.
Sarkozy last week announced «an increase in funds for video surveillance, an acceleration in techniques for gathering telephone material and data storage and a reinforcement of early monitoring of radical elements».(reuters)
