An Austrian politician is set to receive up to 16,000 pounds in compensation after a hidden camera, used for taking wildlife snaps, photographed him having sexual intercourse in a forest, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Legal experts said the camera is in conflict with Austrian laws that restrict the use of surveillance cameras.

Hans Zeger, president of Argen Daten, an NGO specializing in data protection, said that official permission was needed to place the camera, and "at the very least it should have been marked with signs so visitors could adjust their behavior and avoid the monitored areas."





       致力于数据保护的非政府组织Argen Daten的主席汉斯·希格斯说,摄像头安装前应有官方准入手续,至少使用方应在放置处标明此处有监控,这样游客才能避开监控区域,注意检点自己的行为。
