CHP News: CHP head demands details of software allegedly used to spy on ‘justice march’

Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has called on German and Turkish authorities to reveal the details of a German-made software allegedly used to spy on the attendees of last year’s “justice march.”

“They listened to all of our phones conversations. I want the government to reveal those who did this. Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, you have to reveal those who wiretapped us, if you are not a part of this,” Kılıçdaroğlu said at his party’s parliamentary group meeting on May 15.

His comments came after German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung and public broadcasters NDR and WDR published a report by the digital rights group Access Now which said a software called Finspy, created by German company FinFisher, was used to spy on the phones of the attendees of last year’s CHP-led “justice march.”
