MEPs are set to express their indignation at the recent revelations of wiretapping by the intelligence services, as well as the use of spyware, targeting politicians, journalists, and other public figures in Greece. Among the targeted individuals is MEP Nikos Androulakis (S&D, EL), the leader of the Greek opposition party PASOK-KINAL. Earlier this year, the European Parliament established a committee of inquiry to investigate the use of surveillance software. On Thursday 8 September, the committee hosted a discussion on Greece with government officials and journalists targeted by spyware.
