CAB silent on the remote control of computers and phones

Responding to the Helsinki Foundation’s query about whether or not the Central Anti-corruption Bureau uses the Remote Control System software, the Bureau said that the HFHR’s question should be deemed a request for information on the applicable law and as such remains outside the scope of the Access to Public Information Act.
