Given that

  • The Ministry keeps tabs on people Apparating (according to JKR, interview quoted here),

and that

  • the Death Eaters controlled the Ministry after the death of Rufus Scrimgeour in Book 7

how did the trio manage to travel by apparating from one place to another and not get caught?

1 Answer 1


As quoted in the accepted answer here:

"It's impossible to track anyone who Apparates, unless you grab hold of them as they disappear."

-Remus Lupin - Deathly Hallows - Chapter 11 - The Bribe

So the Ministry may have been able to detect that Harry and co had Disapparated from location X, but they'd have no idea where they had actually Apparated to.
