"Sophie in't Veld was more outspoken: “Year after year we have heard about cowboy practices of secret services, but governments did nothing and kept quiet! In fact, those very same governments push for ever more surveillance capabilities, while it remains unclear how effective these practices are."
The Duch MEP nailed it! Red faces, ears burning etc,etc :)
"In't Veld believes the time has come for answers. “How will the Commission investigate these allegations which, when confirmed, would constitute a serious breach of European data protection legislation? How will the Commission act against illegal hacking activities by EU member states on the territory of other member states?”
The day the City lose power (and it will), I bet british politicians will be very "pro-european"...and as usual, the Comedians, sorry, Commissioners at the Commission will do nothing for now.
""If the average IT whizzkid breaks into a company system, he'll end up behind bars," said In't Veld, adding that "hacking a SIM card manufacturer in another EU country" could hardly be within the law"
Everybody knows that the whizzkids are ugly trolls and eat to much pizza, they deserve to go to jail.
