Feijóo believes that it is a “no minor” coincidence to learn of the espionage on Sánchez in the midst of a debate on his stability


The president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has indicated this Monday that the fact that it is now known that the phones of the Chief Executive, Pedro Sánchez, and the Defense Minister, Margarita Robles, have been infected by the Pegasus program is a “no minor political coincidence” as it occurred in “full debate” on the case of alleged espionage on independence leaders and “stability” of the coalition government of PSOE and United We Can.

This was stated in statements to the media on the Day of the Community of Madrid, after the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, announced that the telephone number of the President of the Government and that of the Minister of Defense had been infected with the Pegasussoftware. According to the minister, the Government has brought to justice two technical reports from the National Cryptologic Center detailing the facts.

Feijóo has pointed out that they have been “talking about espionage” for 15 days and that they have been “surprised” that the Government “today” interrupted its agenda with the appearance of Bolaños and the spokesperson, Isabel Rodríguez, at the Moncloa Palace to explain that Sánchez and Tobles have also been able to be “victims of wiretapping with the Pegasus program”. “It is the first explanation that the Government gives us after this matter is being debated and commented on,” he emphasized.

After assuring that the Government must know that it has the “unequivocal” support of the PP to “preserve the security of the State and the institutions that make up the State”, Feijóo has indicated that it is necessary to maximize “the security of the institutions of the State” because They are “negatively surprised” that “today” they find out that in 2021 the cell phone of the Prime Minister and his Defense Minister was spied on.

“It is probably a coincidence, but in the midst of the debate with the independence supporters and the stability of the Government, that we find out that the Minister of Defense and the president have been the object of this alleged espionage is no less a political coincidence,” he said. proclaimed the leader of the opposition.
