The present paper regards the issue of interceptions and audio-video recordings, in light of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Therefore, a democratical society imposes a pressing need for respecting the right to one's "private and family life, his home and his correspondence", which is subject to certain restrictions that are "in accordance with law" and "necessary in a democratic society". Hence, the national legal framework regarding interceptions and audio-video recordings has to provide sufficient guarantees so as the right to privacy is not violated.
