As a person who has dealt with this country on a business level regarding data, i can assure you that this country is ranked the highest as far as human rights privacy laws. They have so many laws in place thats its almost impossible to reach any type of data regarding an individual.

The obvious research can be allowed by private investigators but when you enter the realm of public profiling then its like some national security.

Could the *additional information* be the Bilderberg meeting to be held in Greece May 14th - 17th?

How convenient is this.


The 57th meeting of representatives from Western European and North American countries known as Bilderberg Group will be held next week at a five-star hotel in Greece.

Given the recent riots that went on in December, politicians are afraid of such an event and many neighboring nations fear that it might spill into their country, so everyone is on stand by for what looks like to be a very interesting year.



It has also asked about how Google informs those who might be leaving the homes of illicit lovers, emerging from pornographic establishments, or vomiting on the sidewalk (English tourists) and are suddenly caught by the righteous retina of the Google eye.

It appears that Greece has taken similar measures against a rival surveillance service operated by the Greek ISP Kapou.

As Plato himself put it: "Knowledge becomes evil if the aim be not virtuous." Oh, but virtue is so difficult, is it not?

Indeed, its all about joining the dots, lets see what else is being negotiated at this moment.

Well off hand there are major scandals errupting, one being Siemens and some pay out for the former Olympic Games Security cameras and the Eye in the Sky blimp that was under a joint jurisdiction between the FBI and government Secret Service during the Olympic Games.

Also there is an issue of espionage from Vodafone intercepting certain cell phones from the opposition party. The independent body that was elected from both partys to investigate the accusations found that the signal reference point was traced back to through triangulation to the U.S. Embassy in Athens.

The head investigator of tracking the signal algorithms and code was later found hanging at his home with no suicide note or any signs of mental disorder.
