German magazine Der Spiegel reported on Saturday that German intelligence services “systematically” spied on the allied countries and organizations around the world.
The magazine pointed out that “the Foreign German intelligence services spied systematically on friends in the whole world, including the US, Polish, Austrian and Danish and Croatian interior ministries” without revealing about their sources, and added that the other German media revealed in the past months that the Foreign German intelligence services spied on the US delegation to the European Union in Brussels and to the United Nations in New York or the US ministry of money and several foreign embassies in Germany, including the United States, France, Britain, Sweden, Portugal, Greece, Spain, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Vatican.
Intelligence services used personal data (names or phone numbers or fax) of these delegations, according to the magazine, which reported that the diplomatic missions are not concerned with Article 10 of the German Basic Law, which protects citizens from espionage.
And it added that non-governmental organizations such as Oxfam or the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Geneva had been exposed for spying of these devices and this information considers embarrassing, especially that Berlin protested when it accused the United States of spying on the German government.
These devices were accused of eavesdropping to the account of US National Security Agency on officials in the French Foreign Ministry and the French Presidency and the European Commission.
