Pegasus Project revelations: MEPs debate government spying
On Wednesday, MEPs will ask the Commission and member states for EU action on recent allegations of governmental cyber-surveillance of journalists, politicians and others.
An international investigative journalism consortium has revealed that various governments, including Hungary, may have misused a commercially available quasi-military spyware product called Pegasus to carry out surveillance on opposition figures, human rights activists, journalists and lawyers in the EU and elsewhere.
On 9 September, two of the leaders of the investigative project spoke at a hearing of the Special Committee on Foreign Interference.
Procedure: Council and Commission statement without resolution
Debate: Wednesday, 15 September
