Dutch Used Pegasus Spyware on Most-Wanted Criminal: Report | IT Security - AFP |
Dutch secret services have used the controversial Israeli spyware known as Pegasus to hack targets including the country's most-wanted criminal, a news report said on Thursday.
The Netherlands' AIVD secret service in 2019 used the software bought from Israel's NSO Group to access fugitive alleged drugs kingpin Ridouan Taghi, the Volkskrant daily reported.
Pegasus, which can switch on a phone's camera or microphone and harvest its data, was engulfed in controversy last July after several media outlets reported that governments around the world had used it to spy on opponents.
Based on four anonymous sources, Volkskrant said although tracing criminals was not the AIVD's role, it assisted Dutch police in finding Taghi, who was arrested in Dubai in 2019. Taghi, 44, and 16 others are currently on trial on charges including murder.
The newspaper said the AIVD used Pegasus to spy on Taghi "among others" but did not say who else may have been targeted.

The Dutch Stop Funding Palestinian NGO
We strongly condemn the Dutch government's blow to Palestinian civil society | Mondoweiss - Jan. 2022 |
The European Legal Support Center (ELSC) and The Rights Forum strongly condemn the decision of the Dutch government to end its funding to the Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC). This decision was made despite an external investigation that affirmed UAWC's institutional independence and cleared the organisation of the main charges levied against it by the Israeli government and its extremist allies.
