E-Plus wins case over payments for security monitoring

Friday 29 March 2013 | 09:54 CET | News
Saarland Administrative Court has ruled that the Saarland Office for the Protection of the Constitution must reimburse E-Plus for monitoring customers' mobile phones, Teltarif reported. E-Plus had invoiced the state intelligence office for EUR 1,290 for keeping a number of lines under surveillance by order of the Interior Ministry between 18 October 2010 and 17 January 2011 and for handing over the relevant data, but the security office had declined to pay on the grounds that there was no statutory provision.
