BASSETERRE, St Kitts – The St Kitts and Nevis government says it will soon table legislation to intercept communications on private and public networks with the approval of the High Court.Cabinet earlier this week approved of the Interception of Communication Bill and will soon be presenting it to Parliament.“Some legislation already exists such as the Anti-terrorism Act of 2002 which makes some provision for authorised interception, but the Interception of Communication Bill is setting the stage for a new and comprehensive regime of interception of communications by mobile phones, fixed line phones, telegraphs, wireless networks and devices, mailing systems including parcels and couriers, and other means of communication,” said Minister of Information Nigel Carty.
