STJ rules that it is illegal the redirection of communication of the person who is under investigation to the police cellphones

The 6th Panel of the Superior Court of Justice ruled that it is illegal a court decision that had ordered a telephone company to redirect to the police the phone calls and messages linked to the line of the person who is under investigation.

According to Judge Laurita Vaz, the redirection of conversations, differently from wiretap, would allow investigators to have unrestricted access to all the content of communications, with the possibility of sending new messages and excluding others, hypothesis that is not stated on the Brazilian law.
