The European Parliament (EP) announced on Thursday it had created a "committee of enquiry" to look into use of "Pegasus and equivalent surveillance spyware," by member states, an issue which has caused a scandal in Poland.
The head of Poland's National Security Department has said there is no evidence employees of the Supreme Audit Office (NIK) were subject to mass surveillance after NIK told a Monday press conference use of the Pegasus spyware was a "working hypothesis."
Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of Poland's ruling party Law and Justice (PiS), in an interview with PAP denied accusations made by the opposition that the government had abused a sophisticated spyware system to wiretap people opposing the government.
The District Prosecutor's Office in the central Polish town of Ostrów Wielkopolski has launched an investigation into the alleged phone hacking of a senior opposition figure.
Poland's Supreme Audit Office (NIK) has found that the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau's (CBA) operations were illegally financed, NIK head told a parliamentary body probing a spyware case.
An expert from the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab, which researches digital surveillance, has said there is evidence that a Polish opposition senator was "under extensive monitoring."
