After the Pegasus scandal, Merkel calls for strengthening restrictions on spyware

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, commenting on the spying scandal through the Israeli Pegasus regime, called for the need to limit the sale of spyware to countries where there is no oversight.

At her annual summer press conference, the chancellor said: “It is important that software designed for specific situations does not fall into the wrong hands … and should not be sold to countries where there may not be judicial oversight for such attacks,” according to the Russia Today news website.

These statements come in light of the results of an investigation published earlier, confirming that the “Pegasus” program of the Israeli “NSO” company, which is usually used by intelligence services to track criminals and terrorists, was used to spy on politicians, businessmen, activists and journalists.
