COLOMBO (News1st): The government has begun the usage of the ‘Pegasus’ spyware that grants hackers with access to an entire device, opposition lawmaker Harin Fernando has said.

“This government is focused on looking into your information more than ours. I can say this with utmost confidence,” the Samagi Jana Balawegaya lawmaker noted.

He stressed that the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission and service providers such as Dialog and Mobitel should not assist the government in such activities.

“Aren’t you ashamed of attempting to control people lives in such a manner?” Fernando queried.

The Samagi Jana Balawegaya parliamentarian pointed out that politicians are entitled to their own political opinion, while journalists must be allowed to have freedom of speech.
