Institute an independent inquiry into Pegasus Spying Scandal: Vijai Sardesai

Raising concerns over the allegations in the Pegasus Spying Scandal Report released globally and demanding accountability from the Centre, Goa Forward Party (GFP) President Vijay Sardesai on Tuesday said that instead of dismissing shocking revelations of Pegasus spying, the government must institute a thorough and independent inquiry into it.

In a tweet on the social media platform Twitter, the former Deputy Chief Minister said,” Instead of dismissing these shocking revelations of #PegasusSpying scandal as a ‘conspiracy’, @BJP4India #India govt must institute a thorough & independent investigation into this affair which could seriously compromise the security and integrity of our country. #PegasusSpyware”

 

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, former election commissioner Ashok Lavasa and two sitting Union ministers were among prominent people potentially targeted by Israeli phone hacking software, an international investigative consortium reported.

The Indian government has denied any involvement in the allegations made in the Pegasus Report done by the consortium – which comprises 17 media organizations, including The Guardian, The Washington Post, Le Monde, and Indian news website The Wire – published on Sunday that 38 Indian journalists were among 180 journalists potentially targeted worldwide.
