Using spyware against journalists ‘completely unacceptable’ – EU’s von der Leyen

PRAGUE (Reuters) – Using spyware against journalists would be completely unacceptable, the head of the European Commission said on Monday, after reports that an Israeli company’s spyware was used to hack the smartphones of journalists, government officials and human rights activists around the world.

“What we could read so far, and this has to be verified, but if it is the case, it is completely unacceptable. Against any kind of rules we have in the European Union,” Ursula von der Leyen said during a visit to Prague.
