Surveillance for Sale: 'UK exports spyware to Bahrain to track activists'

5 years ago50 views

The Bahraini government is accused of using surveillance software from a UK-based company, to spy on a leading rights activist. That's according to documents filed at the High Court in London, by one of the founders of the rights group, Bahrain Watch. The programme works by infecting your computer, and then recording your Skype conversations and social media activity. It can also take screenshots without your knowledge, and access information on your hard disk. Alaa Shehabi, who filed the court documents - told RT that digital surveillance has been spreading in Bahrain, since former high ranking UK police officer John Yates became security advisor there.
