Governments have been hacking into people’s privacy for years.
Some of the technology to do it is for sale and tens of thousand of politicians, journalists, lawyers and activists have been targeted.
The system’s called Pegasus. It’s from an Israeli spyware company called NSO.
Thanks to evidence collected by the Paris-based NGO Forbidden Stories and Amnesty International, it seems there are 50-thousand people whose phones have been selected.
Most of the numbers were in Gulf Countries and North Africa. But others include India, Pakistan and France.
So, how much of a threat is advanced technology to privacy and human rights?

Presenter: Rob Matheson

Rasha Abdul Rahim, Director of Amnesty Tech at the International Secretariat of Amnesty International.

They show them how to steal into people homes via electronics/ electromagnetic means there by how to gather every thought word and deed every idiosyncratic notion , I see them here them jump up when they got something and run too the overseer and I notice their continence when thy move these young one are filling up with . .. a vile levers being pulled for thrill. until when when cutting into love of ones own? but how hallow can a child be and still stay alive. like rotting a youth from the inside to out so what so is it so it is ugly expendable units Sad so sad
