#1112 How Poland’s intrusive new spying law could bug world leaders at NATO summit
Polish spies could be secretly eyeballing world leaders attending the NATO summit in Warsaw, but it's impossible to know if such snooping is taking place—all thanks to a new law that came into force just last week.

The new anti-terrorism legislation was signed by Polish president Andrzej Duda on June 22. It came into force one week later. Under the law, secret surveillance may be carried out on any foreigner for up to three months without a court order. This includes undercover audio and video taping, bugging private premises, and accessing private electronic and phone communications.

National leaders including British Prime Minister David Cameron, US President Barack Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (who will face tough questions over his decision not to invest in military aircraft), German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and French President Francois Hollande are all in the Polish capital for the summit over the next few days.
