Media: the leader of the Polish opposition will be interrogated in the case of illegal wiretapping

WARSAW, 19 Feb – The leader of Poland’s largest opposition party, Law and Justice, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, will appear before a parliamentary commission investigating the illegal use of Pegasus software, reports radio station RMF FM.
This commission began work on Monday. Earlier it was reported that, according to various sources, Polish intelligence services used Pegasus to wiretap ex-Prime Minister of the Republic Mateusz Morawiecki, current Prime Minister Donald Tusk, other politicians, as well as businessmen, lawyers, and public figures.
“At a meeting on Monday, the commission presented a work plan, determined the number of permanent advisers and appointed the first witnesses. Among those who will be questioned as witnesses are Jaroslaw Kaczynski, Zbigniew Ziobro (ex-Minister of Justice and Prosecutor General of Poland), Michal Kamiński (ex- head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs), Beata Szydlo (ex-Prime Minister),” the message says.
Pegasus is software created by the Israeli company NSO Group Technologies. It was considered a valuable tool for intelligence agencies: it could be installed remotely on a suspect’s smartphone. The program’s operation was practically invisible and allowed access to all data, including messages in encrypted instant messengers.
