EU to debate American surveillance

Published tisdag 11 juni 2013 kl 10.44
Swedish EU Commissioner Cecilia Malmström is concerned about the effect of the American program

The European Union parliament will meet today to debate issues raised by recently leaked information about the extent of U.S. electronic surveillance programs.

Several leading European politicians are concerned about the recent revelations that the National Security Agency (NSA) of the United States has been secretly monitoring computer and telephone traffic.

Guy Verhofstadt, the leader of the EU's Liberal parliamentary bloc, says that computer spying by the NSA raises serious privacy issues for European citizens.

Swedish EU Commissioner Cecilia Malmström is also worried and angry about the possible consequences for Europeans of the American surveillance, according to Swedish Radio news 

"We are also naturally very concerned about what this will mean for Europeans, since this American program seems to go over borders.  But we don't know all the details yet," Malmström said.
