Numbers of President Emmanuel Macron and members of the government, including former Prime Minister Édouard Philippe, were targeted in 2019 by Morocco according to the organization Forbidden Stories, a media consortium behind the revelations about the software monitoring Pegasus.
Numbers of President Emmanuel Macron and members of the government are on a list of potential targets of the Pegasus software, used by some states to spy on personalities, Laurent Richard, director of the Forbidden Stories organization, said on Tuesday, confirming information from Le Monde. .
“We found these phone numbers, but we were obviously unable to carry out a technical investigation on Emmanuel Macron’s phone to check if it was infected by this software and therefore it does not tell us if the president was really spied on but it shows in any case that there was an interest in doing so, “he explained on the LCI news channel.
It is “obviously very serious”, reacted the Elysee, assuring that “all the light will be made”.
