China: Surveillance in Line With Norms

From AP:

China dismissed a recent U.S. warning about on Beijing Olympics visitors, saying it was “irresponsible” because the country’s security measures do not violate international standards.

The U.S. State Department last week advised Americans to be mindful that all hotel rooms and offices are subject to “onsite or remote technical monitoring at all times” without the occupant’s consent or knowledge.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said privacy in China is guaranteed by law.
