Israel’s Ministry of Justice is seeking to expand the number of government agencies that may track citizens for investigation purposes, Yediot Achronot reported.

The measure would grant such agencies as the Antiquities Authority, Nature and Parks Authority and the Environmental Protection Ministry permission to tap Israelis’ phones and computers.

Expanding a 2007 law, it would also apply to those suspected of misdemeanors, not just felonies, Yediot reported.
