Germany Could Create NSA-Like Mass Surveillance Program

According to a legal fellow at Electronic Frontier Foundation, the German authorities seem to have plans for a mass surveillance program that parallels the NSA program.

MOSCOW (Sputnik), Anastasia Levchenko — German authorities may be establishing a spying program similar to that of the US National Security Agency (NSA), a legal fellow at Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) told Sputnik Tuesday.

Last week, German authorities launched an investigation into the activity of a Netzpolitik.org investigative blog. Two of the blog’s reporters were probed after they quoted secret documents from the country’s security agency detailing plans to extend online surveillance practices.

“What is important here is that the German authorities seem to have plans for a mass surveillance program that parallels the NSA program — a program that itself has been shrouded in secrecy and replete with constitutional defects,” Jamie Williams said.
