Canada is considering a move to outlaw electronic surveillance by Canada’s police and other government agencies, and other countries are discussing similar measures.
The U.S. and Canada both recently announced that they are looking at ways to outlaw spying on citizens.
In the U.K., Prime Minister Theresa May announced a “national action plan” that includes a ban on electronic surveillance.
In Canada, the Harper government announced in April that it is looking at legislation that would ban the use of cellphone tracking devices in police searches.
The government says such devices can help prevent crime.
On Tuesday, Mexico’s Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray announced the creation of a special committee to study the use and misuse of surveillance devices in the country’s criminal justice system.
The committee would include representatives from the federal government, the federal and state governments, and civil society.
In a statement, Videgaralay said, “This is a difficult task and requires coordination between the government and the private sector, which will help to ensure the effectiveness of the measures to be adopted.”
Videgaray also said the committee would examine how such devices are used in Mexican jails.
He said the use in the criminal justice systems is a concern for both the public and the judiciary, and that a ban is necessary to ensure that police and courts are independent of any political influence.
The United States, the second-largest economy in the world, has also been looking at surveillance measures in recent months.
In April, the Obama administration announced it was looking into whether the government can compel companies to turn over the data of their customers.
The European Union, a bloc of 27 nations that also includes Canada, is also considering a similar proposal.
But the EU’s chief spokesman said in a statement that it would wait to see how Mexico and other governments are addressing the issue before deciding on a policy.
The government in Mexico is trying to curb surveillance and use of data collection in Mexico City.
Mexico City’s Police Department has said that electronic surveillance devices have helped the police prevent crime, but there have been some reports that some of the devices may have been used to track people who are suspected of drug crimes.
In an interview with the television station Univision, Mayor Jose Luis Videgara said that the devices were used to collect the names and photos of drug users and that they were used as a tool for tracking down suspected drug dealers.
He said the devices had also been used for drug investigations.
