Researchers from the Citizen Lab observation group in Toronto have caught the Polish authorities using the Israeli Pegasus software to spy on representatives of the political opposition. This is reported by Politico.
According to the publication, the victims of the program were a well-known lawyer Roman Giertych and prosecutor Eva Wrzosek (Ewa Wrzosek). They said that their phones were hacked for the purpose of surveillance. At the same time, the Polish government rejected these accusations. “Any suggestion that the Polish services use operational methods for the sake of political struggle is false,” said the minister—coordinator of the country’s special services Stanislav Zharin.
