For people who are not aware of events that took place on 7 of November, 2007, some background information would be useful. In the midst of police using tear gas, rubber bullets and other non-lethal equipment available to them to disperse large crowd gathered in front of the parliament, almost all TV channels suddenly started broadcasting a "documentary" about opposition leaders' phone conversations. While proof is yet to be provided about legality of the wiretapping, government is suggesting that these people are guilty - just by association. Friendly hello, telling something that is not a secret is now considered enough to be branded a traitor. Judge yourself.
