 Legal Loophole

German lawmakers probing the surveillance activities of the U.S. nationwide safety company have uncovered a felony loophole that permits the country’s international intelligence agency to secret agent on its own electorate.

The company, identified with the aid of its German acronym BND, is usually forbidden from eavesdropping on Germans or German firms.

But a former BND lawyer instructed Parliament this week that Germans are not secure while working in a foreign country for foreign companies.

The federal government demonstrated Saturday to The associated Press that work-associated calls or emails are attributed to the business enterprise. If the agency is overseas, the BND can intercept them.

Opposition lawmakers have accused Germany’s govt of feigning outrage over alleged NSA spying while condoning illegal surveillance itself.
