Shaked says unaware of police misusing spyware while she was Justice Minister

Ayelet Shaked says she was unaware of police allegedly misusing spyware while she was serving as Justice Minister between 2015 and 2019.

“It is unthinkable in a democracy, we will amend the wiretapping law,” she vows in an interview with Channel 12.

Police have been accused of using NSO Group’s Pegasus software to hack into phones — including of those not suspected of any crime — obtaining data without prior court approval or abusing loopholes in existing laws that allow wiretapping.
