Hackers sue Merkel & entire German government over NSA spying

3 February 2014

Europe’s largest association of hackers has filed a criminal complaint against the German government for aiding foreign spying by NSA and GCHQ, and violating the right to citizens’ privacy, basing their case on leaks by whistleblower Edward Snowden. READ MORE here.

Dozens of links for data traffic of Dutch telecom company KPN were for years the target of the German secret service together with the United States National Security Agency.

So says the Austrian politician Peter Pilz, who on Thursday at a press conference in Brussels showed a list of connections.

The Americans made a list of priorities and based on that list the German Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) snooped on them in Frankfurt. Which businesses or organizations have been targeted by the spying is not yet clear.

KPN announced they would investigate everything. The company thinks they will need ‘a few weeks at least’ for that.

Still this Tuesday, minister Ronald Plasterk (Interior) said to parliament that there ”is no evidence yet” that the Netherlands was a spying target of the German secret service.

The German foreign secret service (BND) has not only delivered data to the US intelligence services on a massive scale, it has also worked directly with the NSA in developing detection software. This has been confirmed by extensive data published by the WikiLeaks platform at the beginning of December. It documents the close cooperation between German and American intelligence agencies and reveals new details: here.

Two weeks after a terrorist attack on a Christmas market in Berlin, Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière (Christian Democratic Union, CDU) is demanding a fundamental restructuring and centralisation of the security apparatus. The Federal Criminal Agency (BKA) requires strengthening, the various state domestic intelligence agencies must be dismantled in favour of a federally administered organisation and a genuine federal police force must be built, he argued: here.
