France says ‘non’ to Wi-Fi and Tor restrictions after terror attack • The Register

Daesh-bags won’t kill liberté, égalité, fraternité

The French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has ruled out introducing restrictions on public Wi-Fi and access to Tor as a response to the Paris terrorist attacks.

Earlier this month, documents leaked to Le Monde suggested that the French police were asking for powers for the following (among others):

  • Curtail public Wi-Fi
  • Enforce GPS tracking of rented cars
  • Allow the use of cellphone collection stations
  • Authorize the eradication of Tor

But the socialist leader has told the gendarmes to ficher le camp.
