Portuguese Government authorizes sound recordings using public surveillance cameras in Lisbon

The Ministry for Internal Administration (MAI) of the Portuguese government has green-lighted a proposal to gather live audio streams coming from the public surveillance cameras now under the management of the Public Security Police (PSP) and the National Republican Guard, the two main LEAs operating in the state.

The operation is restricted for now to a Lisbon district (Barrio Alto) and will not require any judicial order.
