Greece: Prime minister and top officials' phones tapped by "unknown individuals"
Statewatch News Online, February 2006
The mobile phones of Greek prime minister Costas Caramanlis and top government and security officials were tapped by unknown individuals during the Athens 2004 Olympics and for nearly a year after, the government said yesterday. The list of about 100 people whose telephones were tapped included the ministers of foreign affairs, defence, public order and justice. Most of Greece's top military and police officers were also targeted, as were foreign ministry officials. The phone tappers used interceptors traced to the vicinity of the US embassy.
