Re: Initiative: statutory basis for monitoring claimants

I believe the point of the initiative is to permit surveillance under certain limited conditions when there is sufficient cause. The courts basically took away this ability observing that Swiss law did not allow it (neither did Swiss law outlaw it).

It provides some legal rights to the person being watched, for example, by requiring that they be told of the surveillance after the fact.

I think it’s a good balance. There are less than honest people out there and agencies do need legal certainty to do their job. On the other hand people should not be harassed should their curtain twitching neighbours believe they are cheating, when they are not.
