Market Desk (online): Hanan Elatr also intends to sue Saudi Arabia and UAE for their alleged involvement in installing the software on her phone.
NSO Group’s Pegasus spyware reportedly has the ability to turn a phone into surveillance device with microphones and cameras activated without the user’s knowledge.
“It is important to make everyone involved in this horrible crime accountable. My husband was a peaceful man. I believe in American justice,” Elatr was quoted as saying by The Guardian.
As for the lawsuit, Elatr now wants to obtain all of Khashoggi’s electronic devices that appear to be owned by Turkish authorities.
Jamal Khashoggi’s wife claims that the Saudi and Emirati governments tapped her mobile phone from November 2017 to April 2018.
Hanan Ilatar said, my husband was a very peaceful person. Jamal Khashoggi was a staunch critic of the Saudi royal family.
Meanwhile, Israel says that we only sell this spyware to the government of a country. Whether the customer uses it after purchase—that’s entirely up to them. Israel does not want to take any responsibility in this regard.
It should be noted that in 2018, Saudi hit squad members brutally killed journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Arabian embassy in Turkey.
After this, US also reported that Prince Salman had ordered the assassination of Khagosi.
After the publication of the report, Biden said, they will make Saudi Arabia a one-house state. After this incident, the tension between the Biden administration and Saudi Arabia began.
