50 thousand telephones are bugged for 24 hours. 70 million cellular phones are being monitored every minute in Turkey, Sabah reported.

The police department has the court decree to bug telephone calls for a quarterly period. It is stated that National Intelligence Agency and Turkish Armed Forces are bugging all the mobile phones in Turkey.

The debates on bugging starting with the cases of bugging the constitutional court chairman Osman Paksüt, CHP general secretary Önder Sav and the request by the chairman of the police department chief Ramazan Akyürek have gained a new dimension with the claims that all communication lines in Turkey are actually bugged.

The police department said: "we bug the telephones but not all of the people in Turkey. 50 thousand phones are bugged with a court decree in Turkey. 70 million telephones are monitored. The courts extend the periods for bugging for a period of three months at most, so the courts make retrospective decisions. So, telephones are bugged and monitored continuously and live."
