The Israeli cyber intelligence firm NSO has been in talks with the Jordanian government regarding the sale of new spy technology to Amman, Axios reports.

Jordan’s intelligence services are known for monitoring terror groups on the country’s soil but have also come under fire for cracking down on critics of the government.

The talks began last year and representatives from NSO visited Amman for them, Axios reports.

NSO has been criticized over its technologies being used by authoritarian countries around the world to squelch opposition activists.
