Unsere Freunde von Privacy International haben heute Strafanzeige bei der britischen „National Cyber Crime Unit“ der „National Crime Agency“ eingereicht:
The complaint filed today argues that the actions of the Bahraini authorities qualifies as an unlawful interception of communications under section 1 of the UK’s Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000. By selling and assisting Bahraini authorities, the complaint argues that Gamma is liable as an accessory under the Accessories and Abettors Act 1861 and/or encouraged and assisted the offence under the Serious Crime Act 2007.
Adriana Edmeades, Anwalt von Privacy International, sagt:
For too long companies like Gamma have been enabling repressive states‘ unlawful conduct, but then seeking to suggest that they bear no responsibility for the products that they supply. We think it’s time that companies like Gamma, which earn a significant amount of money from providing pernicious technologies to states which are known to torture and repress, are made to face the consequences of their doing so.
Wir haben wiederholt berichtet, dass der Staatstrojaner made in Germany „FinFisher“ auch in Bahrain eingsetzt wird.
