EU agency backtracks on Skype crime claims

Eurojust, an EU agency that co-ordinates judicial co-operation across member states, has significally altered a statement in which it said criminals were using Skype to avoid detection by the authorities.One week ago, Eurojust announced it planned to “play a key role in the coordination and cooperation of the investigations on the use of internet telephony systems (VoIP), such as Skype.” The agency said its role would be to smooth out the technical and judicial obstacles to the interception of internet telephony systems, taking into account the various data protection rules and civil rights. Eurojust also said it had become involved at the request of the Italian anti-Mafia directorate.
