Storm in Spain: NSO spyware found on Prime Minister’s phone

The mobile phones of the Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez And the Minister of Defense Margarita Robles Were hacked by the Pegasus spyware of the Israeli company NSO, without the approval of the Spanish government. This was announced today (Monday) by Felix Bolanus, a senior government minister.

Bolanus stated during a sudden press conference he convened this morning that the phones were hacked last year, with Sanchez’s phone being hacked in May and Robles’ phone in June.

The minister called the incident an “external and prohibited assault” and said it was not carried out by state agencies. “In a full democracy like ours, only official bodies are authorized to carry out interventions and always with judicial approval,” Bolanos said, according to the Spanish media.
