On Sunday, Glenn Greenwald (U.S Journalist) said that he obtained some secrets from Snowden which reveals that the communications of the Brazilian and Mexican presidents was spied by National Security Agency’s Spy programme, Emails of Mexico leader’s email contents were accessed before he was elected.
Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, told Globo’s news program “Fantastico” that a document dated June 2012 shows that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s emails were being read. The document’s date is a month before Pena Nieto was elected and it is not yet clear if the spying continues.
In an Email conversation Greenwald told AP:
“But it is clear in several ways that her communications were intercepted, including the use of DNI Presenter, which is a program used by NSA to open and read emails and online chats.”
Brazilian Justice Minister Eduardo Cardozo told the newspaper O Globo:
“if the facts of the report are confirmed, they would be considered very serious and would constitute a clear violation of Brazil’s sovereignty.”
“This is completely outside the standard of confidence expected of a strategic partnership, as the U.S. and Brazil have,” he added.
Greenwald co-wrote some articles in O Globo which said that the documents leaked by Snowden reflect that Brazil was the largest target in Latin America for the NSA program, which collected data on billions of emails and calls flowing through Brazil.
It is also reported by Greenwald that the NSA collected the data through an undefined association between U.S. and Brazilian telecommunications companies and said he could not verify which Brazilian companies were involved or if they were aware their links were being used to collect the data.
