In his statement the Minister has omitted to quote the crucial part of Pegasus’ statement: P Chidambaram

  • NSO Group, the owner of Pegasus, has said that “NSO sells its technologies solely to law enforcement and intelligence agencies of vetted governments”

  • It is unfortunate that Minister Vaishnaw has started his innings on the wrong foot.

  • In his statement the Minister has omitted to quote the crucial part of Pegasus’ statement.

  • The services that are “openly available to anyone, anywhere, and anytime” refer to HLR Lookup services, not to Pegasus.

  • The Minister should answer a simple question: Did the government acquire the Pegasus software/spyware?
