Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Iliopoulos noted the case of journalist Thanasis Koukakis, who also filed a complaint after discovering in April that his mobile phone had been hacked by the spyware from July 12 to Sept. 24, 2021.

He said the Mitsotakis government passed an amendment into law so that the Authority for Ensuring the Privacy of Communications does not inform citizens if they have been a victim of a malicious practice.

"For this, the government should apologize," Mitsotakis Iliopoulos.

Meanwhile, MEPs of SYRIZA - Progressive Alliance said: "Almost three days after the shocking revelation of Nikos Androulakis about the attempt to monitor his mobile phone through the very expensive Predator malware, and the Greek government is still silent on whether a state agency has this particular spying software at its disposal."

Sophie in't Veld, a Dutch lawmaker and chairwoman of the European Parliament's special committee on spyware, said: "Governments are buying this stuff and it's very, very difficult for them to resist the temptation to use it for political purposes."
