    What he said in his intervention in the debate concerning the recent revelations about spying on Members of the European Parliament

    To ban the monitoring software was requested from the European Commission by MEP Giorgos Georgiou,during his intervention in the debate on Tuesday night on the subject of surveillance, noting that toleration of a crime is considered complicity.

    In particular, the debate was about the recent revelations about spying on MEPs Parliament and lack of continuity in the recommendations of the PEGA committee, of which Mr. Georgiou, a member of the Left group in the EP, is Vice-President. p>

    In his intervention, Mr. Georgiou said that the European Commission is now complicit, noting that MEPs are being monitored again “with illegal software”.

    The PEGA Commission worked very hard to 15 months around the surveillance issue, he added.

    “We gave the European Commission everything: facts, the guilty companies, names and addresses, the guilty states, we also made recommendations. What don't you understand?”, asked Mr. Georgiou, asking the Commission if it was not tired of hiding “behind cheap rhetoric”.

    He noted that, “even the Americans” imposed sanctions on NSO and INTELLEXA.

    “The reaction of your own Commission is deplorable,” he said, adding that, “you are pampering the Israelis,” “covering up the illegalities of European governments, undermining democracy, violating our human rights”.

    “Now, now, I am sure. You do it consciously,” continued Mr. Georgiou, noting that toleration of a crime is considered complicity.

    “Ban them, finally, let's end it,” he said finally.
