Parl't Passes New Privacy Law
Parliament passed a law that will increase protection of privacy, with 153 deputies supporting the proposal and 34 voting against it.

Under the new law “everybody is entitled to respect for their private and family life, home or contacts”. The legislation stipulates that public officials are entitled to the same protection as private individuals “outside the discussion of public affairs”.

Public officials’ activities in their private life or information thereabout are outside of the public realm, according to the new stipulations.
