‘False rumours’: Stand by findings of Pegasus Project, says Amnesty International | THP India News

NEW DELHI: The Amnesty International on Thursday said it stands by the findings of the Pegasus Project and asserted that the data is “irrefutably linked” to potential targets of NSO Group’s Pegasus spyware.
The human rights group rejected reports claiming that Amnesty never said that the leaked list specifically includes numbers of those who were targeted by the Pegasus spyware.
It claimed that the “false rumours” being pushed on social media are intended to distract from the widespread unlawful targeting of journalists, activists and others that the Pegasus Project has revealed.
“Amnesty International categorically stands by the findings of the Pegasus Project, and that the data is irrefutably linked to potential targets of NSO Group’s Pegasus spyware. The false rumours being pushed on social media are intended to distract from the widespread unlawful targeting of journalists, activists and others that the Pegasus Project has revealed,” Amnesty International said in a statement.
Last week, a global investigation published by 17 media organisations, led by the Paris-based non-profit journalism group Forbidden Stories, claimed that Israeli spyware developed by NSO was used to target the phones of politicians, journalists, government officials and human rights activists.
The Wire, which was part of the international consortium, reported that the leaked list of “potential targets” for hacking featured many prominent Indian names such as that of former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, BJP ministers Ashwini Vaishnaw and Prahlad Singh Patel, former election commissioner Ashok Lavasa and poll strategist Prashant Kishor.
