One positive outcome of a military takeover. More as they are

CDRM bans wiretapping

The Council for Democratic Reform under Constitutional Monarchy
Saturday imposed a ban on wiretapping and threatened to revoke the
concessions of telecoms operators caught eavesdropping, its spokesman

"It's the military coup leaders' order that wiretapping is banned and
anyone -- wiretappers, masterminds, operators -- would face the
harshest punishment of fines and jail terms," said Lieutenant General
Palangoon Klaharn.

"The operator will face the most serious punishment, including the
revocation of the concession."

A telecom company founded and later sold by ousted premier Thaksin
Shinawatra, Advanced Info Service, is Thailand's largest mobile phone
operator and controls more than 51 percent of the 33-million-user

Palangoon said the ban, effective immediately, did not target any
particular operator and was in line with international standards.

Previously wiretapping was legal only for police who obtained a court
order or for the nation's intelligence agencies._______________________________________________
