Only call details given to police in 670 cases: VF

Only call details given to police in 670 cases: VF Vodafone Fiji says it provided call details in 670 cases to police on the production of a search warrant or court order, but does not listen to or record calls, and could not provide such information.

Managing director Aslam Khan says the company does not have the technical capability in its network to listen to a telephone conversation, or record a phone call or a text message.

Khan clarification follows a report released by its United Kingdom parent highlighting legal intercepts of calls and calls records in some of the 29 countries the company operates in.

In the report, Vodafone revealed how government agencies around the world use secret wires to listen to private phone calls across its network through direct-access wires or pipes connected directly to its network.

The wires allow conversations to be listened to or recorded, or metadata - including the location of a device, the times and dates of communications and with whom communication was made - to be captured.

Vodafone outlined the details in a report on the widespread use of secret surveillance by government agencies in a bid to reveal the extent that phone tapping is used by governments to snoop on their citizens.

Interestingly the UK, with a population of 63 million issued 2,760 (a ratio of 1 warrant for every 22,826 people) warrants for the content of calls and messages in 2012 while Fiji with a population of 875,000, issued 760 (1 warrant for every 1151 people).

“Vodafone Fiji provided this information to its head office in the UK and consented to the statistics to be published for public consumption,” Khan said.

“We have nothing to hide. It is as transparent as it can get. The 670 cases listed in the report under Vodafone Fiji is for information related to call records that is provided to Police and the courts on production of a search warrant or court order. “

Khan said the only information they provide on the production of a search warrant is the date and time of calls made or text messages sent between two parties and the duration of that call.   

“This is the only information we capture and record for billing purposes.

“Vodafone Fiji does not have technical capability in its network to either listen to a telephone conversation or record a phone call or a text message.”

Khan says there is no law to allow the legal intercept of mobile voice or data in Fiji.

“If any network provider were to eavesdrop on a call or read contents an SMS message sent and received between two parties, this would be classified as illegal,” he said.

“We would like reassure all our subscribers that Vodafone Fiji neither has technical capability nor a desire to ever listen to or read contents of any communication between any two parties.  We will also not support such a requirement that contravenes the rights of our customers.”
He says as far as he is aware, no other network operator in Fiji had listening or interception capability.
