Dan Or-Hof and Rotem Perelman-Farhi analyzed the Israeli Supreme Court decision on COVID-19 related phone tracing by the Israeli Secret Service in an article for the International Association of Privacy Professionals.

“The violation of the right to privacy is severe because the [Israeli secret service] tracks the location and other personal information related to law-abiding citizens and residents by using a covert, coercive and non-transparent technology.”

“… the measures taken by the Israeli government to confront the COVID-19 virus are extreme and unusual and warned from a slippery slope effect, which may lead to the use of the [Israeli secret service’s] capabilities without proper justification for additional purposes. The court encouraged the government to find and deploy effective alternatives to the [Israeli secret service’s] means.”
