The Govt. must come clean on the issues raised by revelations of phone surveillance
Read “Spy in hand: On Pegasus spyware issue: The Govt. must come clean on the issues raised by revelations of phone surveillance”, editorial in The Hindu, July 21, 2021 https://t.co/Ncs19CEEEo https://t.co/jzhxhnrvvn https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/editorial/spy-in-hand-on-pegasus-spyware-issue/article35434002.ece
Surveillance breaching privacy of individuals is antithetical to the basic creed of democracy which warrants a fair investigation.First of all, the govt must clear the air on the foremost question it is skirting around—has any Indian agency bought Pegasus? https://t.co/odXrOW4AVf https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/editorial/spy-in-hand-on-pegasus-spyware-issue/article35434002.ece
The list of potential targets — journalists, politicians, probably a Supreme Court judge and a former Election Commissioner — does not indicate that the surveillance was necessitated by national security or public safety concerns: editorial in @the_hindu https://t.co/Ntkpb3qUt8 https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/editorial/spy-in-hand-on-pegasus-spyware-issue/article35434002.ece
The usual suspects in the media twisted an Israeli journalist’s report and the politicians lapped it up.
Yesterday, BJP & a few news channels cited a report in Hebrew to claim that Amnesty has denied the list of 50k phone numbers (at the core of #PegasusProject) The Israeli reporter told @newslaundry his report NEVER CLAIMED the list wasn’t linked to NSO https://t.co/1dnUXizEtu https://www.newslaundry.com/2021/07/23/no-one-says-the-pegasus-list-is-fake-why-are-bjp-leaders-and-their-media-allies-insisting-it-is
No one says the Pegasus list is fake. Why are BJP leaders and their media allies insisting it is? https://t.co/MylWLXNVzH https://www.newslaundry.com/2021/07/23/no-one-says-the-pegasus-list-is-fake-why-are-bjp-leaders-and-their-media-allies-insisting-it-is
Why won’t India’s government say clearly that it has not used Pegasus spyware against its own citizens?
RT @RohanV: And in India, of course, the government has yet to actually say the words, 'we did not use Pegasus'. https://t.co/yYfwCWqirR https://scroll.in/article/1000605/across-official-denials-and-bjp-responses-one-phrase-missing-india-did-not-use-pegasus-spyware

NSO maintains that it sells its technologies solely to law enforcement and intelligence agencies of “vetted governments” for the purpose of “preventing criminal and terror acts”.
Pegasus: According to estimates based on NSO’s proposal in 2016, $500,000 installation fee, followed by $650,000 to spy on 10 iPhones or Android users; $500,000 for five BlackBerry users; or $300,000 for five Symbian users. https://t.co/y6QazglVZC @IndianExpress https://indianexpress.com/article/india/project-pegasus-cost-of-putting-pegasus-in-phones-runs-into-crores-7414323/
This is how much of public money govt spent on snooping on opp leaders, own ministers, journos, woman who complained of sexual harassment by a CJI, & presumably 100s of others. What spin will govt put on this spend of taxpayers money? #PegasusGate https://t.co/uCaZHRv4cD https://indianexpress.com/article/india/project-pegasus-cost-of-putting-pegasus-in-phones-runs-into-crores-7414323/
