Ecuadorian Foreign Minister said that Ecuador could carry out actions against the U.S. television network ‘Univision’ on the grounds of having committed espionage after entering the Internet accounts regime leader, Rafael Correa and other officials.
The Associated Press (AP) contacted ‘Univision’ for a reaction but could not talk with Vice President David Coronell, current vice president of news of that media. Controversy and further investigations were due to publication of ‘Univision’ on its website of an article that read “The Secret History of the case (Edward) Snowden“, in which it revealed communications between senior officials of Ecuador with the Ecuadorian ambassador in the United States, Nathalie Cely, along with the ambassador in London, Ana Alban, the legal secretary of the presidency, Chancellor Patiño himself and even the leader Rafael Correa. Without much detail ‘Univision’ said they had “exclusive access” to documents and communications between Ecuadorian officials.
According to Patiño, the actions of ‘Univision’ are “a blatant interference in our internal communications and not only communications: what is clear is that not only do they know what we write but how computer communications were made, how many minutes waited a draft to the final document, and so on. This means that the incursion level into our electronic communications is complete, shameful.”
“They have all the inside information of communications, we are studying the situation because what ‘Univision’ is declaring was taken from information received absolutely illegally,” said Patino.
Patino said that regarding spying on citizens and different countries as the United States does, which was revealed by Edward Snowden, former CIA analyst, are actions that “threatens not only the confidentiality of communications but also the peace and that is very serious, is intolerable that all countries of the world, governments of the world and that citizens of the world know that anything we write confidentially, there is a government that knows.“
