Ecuadorian President denounced on Tuesday a new network of espionage against the governments of Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina.
The president said that he received information from a source close to the operation, even though no one knows who is behind it. In the case of Ecuador, he said they have intercepted both phone numbers and emails.
“We are still investigating who led this massive spying operation, which is different from the one reported by (Edward) Snowden, but it has spied the governments of (Juan Manuel) Santos, also the Venezuelan government and the Argentine government,” said Correa.
He added that he has the evidence, but didn’t anticipate if he was going to make them public.
“We have the evidence, we are not suspecting, we were sent several emails that we have been spied constantly,” stressed the head of State and asserted that all accounts “of emails have been hacked” and “also cell phones”.
