skype to be monitored in Belgium by police soon

The Belgian police and intelligence services are using more phone taps than ever before according to an answer to a parliamentary question. But the police forces are saying they are losing out because they can't intercept skype conversations yet, what some criminals seem to use.

The minister of Justice is working at a solution to force 'internet service providers' such as skype to work with the police.

This changes nothing at the process in which the police has to get the benidiction of a judge or prosecutor before being able to intercept and use those conversations.

But what will they ask when they are confronted with encryption ? Ask for the encryption key ?
