if it had of happened in ZŁrich the case would have been treated completely different. These hillbilly courts in Aargau!

It even got into the outside world-what do they think of Switzerland?

That we are one of the last countries in the world where privacy still is a thing to be taken serious.

If you hate Switzerland so much, why do you not move out instead of your constant trolling and nagging?

You are just so spott on there with this privacy thing.It's really important to stop women from looking into all the dirty little affairs of their husbands

He broke no law, thus there was not a single legal reason for whomever to break his privacy. Also she did not know upfront if he was cheating, so she broke the law only based on a feeling.

But I truly believe you lack the motivation and/or intelligence to understand such.

And she was right in this feeling! And what if she had hired a private detective to follow him and take pics. Also illegal?

Re: Swiss court convicts woman for reading husbandís emails

This case raises more questions than it answers. Can an employee sue thier employer for reading their e-mails as they can easily access the e-mails from the server?

I think this ruling should also come with a simplified guide for the layman on how to stay safe from similar prosecution as in our house everythingís transparent and we know each otherís e-mail, phone, bank card PIN and even internet banking details. I guess that also acts as a deterrent to play away from the field.

Stalking is illegal.
Breaching ones privacy by breaking the laws on what would be allowed to photograph is also illegal.

And yes, let's give every person the right to break the law on their own because they have a feeling....

I had a feeling that you hide something, sorry for breaching through your front door and searching through your house. Oh and since I found anime which says that you do not like me anymore I was right in my hunch and my actions clearly are completely o.k. and only a hillbilly judge from Aargau would be so stupid to convict me of something..

Must be nice to live in your world (As long as you are the one breaching other peoples rights.)

Re: Swiss court convicts woman for reading husbandís emails

She had no criminal intent in going into his mails. It was not done to defraud him or something similar. These courts think they have rights in all aspects of family life. Aargau!!

That is just plain dumb O.

Reading those mails was the illegal act.

Yes, unless it was pre-announced and the reason for doing so a valid one. Similar applies to other intrusions of privacy like filming sensitive locations. Open your eyes next time you enter a train or public bus, take a close look at the windows by the doors.

That's not the courts' job. I'm pretty certain it isn't in your home country either, whichever that happens to be.

The law is clear and must be respected; Whether she was morally right is a completely different argument (FWIW I think she was)

I dare say that if he hadn't actually been cheating, he would hardly have dragged his wife to court after she read his e-mails. Nice of him to not only cheat on his wife, but also have her convicted. Beautiful human being. I hope the divorce will cost him a fair bit of money.

The ruling is ridiculously harsh, particularly for this country where others walk free and pay next to nothing for actual rather horrific crimes.

Is he an idiot of epic proportions by using the same passwords all around on a shared computer no less? You bet. Is it morally right to read others' e-mails? No. Is it something that needs to be punished by law in this particular situation? Not in my book.
Itís stories like this that make me despair sometimes with Switzerland. This black and white interpretation of the law when clearly some discretion is required. The idea of ďmitigating circumstancesĒ seems like an alien concept here. Like that story last year with when a suicidal person was run over on the motorway and charges were brought against the driver. On the other side, this interpretation of the law is also a good part of the reason Switzerland functions so well.

Re: Swiss court convicts woman for reading husbandís emails

But then what if it was the abusive husband who hacks into the wife's emails to find out she's been planning to do a flit with the kids to a refuge or similar?

Just because you leave the backdoor of your house unlocked is not an excuse for somebody to trespass.

Re: Swiss court convicts woman for reading husbandís emails

The whole deal went to the federal court. The court upheld the canton's court decision

When you feel the urge to read OH's e-mails without their permission, the level of trust is already very, very low...she could have asked her spouse for a divorce without doing anything illegal.
According to the media report from the Swiss Federal court, they were already separated (but not divorced yet) and living in separate places. So most likely the marriage was already over.
