Summary

The aim of this study is provide insight into the actual use of telephone and Internet taps in criminal investigations. The starting point of this research has been an indirect presentation of the following questions:

  1. In what ways are telephone and Internet taps used in the Netherlands during the criminal investigation process?
  2. How do some other West European countries (England and Wales, Germany, Sweden) handle this means of criminal investigation?
  3. Is it possible to explain (big) differences in the use of this means of criminal investigation between these countries?
Deze vraagstelling is uitgewerkt in verschillende onderzoeksvragen, die zich samen laten vatten als: hoe vaak, waarom en wanneer wordt de telefoon- en internettap ingezet, voor hoe lang wordt een tap aangesloten en wat voor een informatie levert het dan op?
