Poland's special services are always legally warranted to conduct their operations, which are also overseen by the general prosecutor and courts, a government official said on Friday referring to allegations that mobile phone spyware was being used against government opponents.
Polish government agencies will scrutinise allegations that the Israeli-made Pegasus mobile phone spying system was used against government opponents, Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister, has said.
The Polish government spokesperson has said there is no reason to create a special body to investigate media reports that opposition figures were spied on with the Pegasus spyware made by Israel's NSO Group.
The Polish prime minister has said media reports of opposition figures being spied on with Israeli-made software must be verified against fake news.
Poland's justice minister, Zbigniew Ziobro, has said he has "no knowledge of any illegal actions" in a spying scandal involving the hacking of smartphones.
The Polish prime minister has said media reports of opposition figures being spied on with Israeli-made software must be verified before any accusations are made.
The government's alleged use of spyware to eavesdrop on the opposition warrants its dismissal, the speaker of Poland's Senate, the upper house of parliament, said on Tuesday.
