Governments around the world are using the most advanced electronic warfare equipment to monitor their citizens’ every move. The equipment, designed for the fight against terrorism, has found its way into the hands of repressive dictatorial regimes in Libya, Syria and Bahrain. Brutal security forces in these countries use the technology to track down protestors and bloggers, who are swiftly arrested and tortured. This investigation looks into how these rogue states are buying this equipment through deals with French companies and high ranking members of the Sarkozy government.
