BERLIN: Germany has demanded answers from Britain over its Tempora electronic surveillance programme, warning that measures shrouded in secrecy harm democracy and urging that the controversy be dealt with at the EU level.

Justice Minister Sabine LeutheusserSchnarrenberger voiced a great deal of concern and demanded London clarify designer bag outlet online the legal basis for its alleged massive data haul, in two letters made available to AFP on Wednesday.

Questions have been raised concerning the extent to which especially German citizens have been targeted, she wrote to her British counterpart Christopher Grayling and to the interior minister, Theresa May.

Charges that Britains intelligence services are tapping cables that carry the worlds phone calls and Internet traffic came from documents leaked by US exintelligence technician Edward Snowden, who remained holed up at Moscow airport and is wanted on spy charges in the United States.

LeutheusserSchnarrenberger asked about reports that the British Tempora project enables it to intercept, to collect and to store vast quantities of global email messages, Facebook posts, Internet histories and calls for 30 days and that these were being shar designer bag outlet online ed with the US intelligence agency NSA.

She stressed that the transparency of government action is of key significance in any democratic state and is a prerequisite for the rule of law. Parliamentary and judicial scrutiny are designer bag outlet online central features of a free and democratic state but cannot come to fruition if government measures are shrouded in secrecy.

Germany is especially sensitive over privacy and data protection, given its dark history of state surveillance and secret police abuses under the Nazis and the communist East German regime.

The minister last weekend said the Tempora accusations would be a catastrophe if true and added: The allegations against Great Britain sound like a nightmare out of Hollywood . European institutions should shed light on this immediately.

In her letters to the British government, she again stressed that these measures must be raised in an EU context at ministerial level and as part of ongoing discussions on the EU Data Protection Regulation. designer bag outlet online
