Eurojust Retracts VoIP Allegations



February 26, 2009 By

Eurojust, an EU judicial body composed of a representative from each of the 27 member states, has the mission of "enhancing the development of Europe-wide co-operation on criminal justice cases."

Last week Eurojust issued a release that said Italian criminals were using Skype and other IP telephony systems to sidestep police wiretaps, and faulted Skype's refusal to share encryption system secrets with officials. This week, Eurojust retracted that statement, saying that the report was premature and some of the data were incorrect.

Media and blogging coverage of the event variously reported that Eurojust did not contact Skype before issuing the statement, and the EU agency now says on its site that there are no official cases reported to it.
