At the beginning of February, the European Parliament will send an observation mission to Poland and Hungary, whose task will be to investigate information about the illegal use of Pegasus spy software against opposition politicians.
After the fraud, issues have been investigated and a report written by a group led by the Spaniard Esteban Gonzáles Pons (European People's Party), further work will be undertaken by the European Parliament's Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee (LIBE). After the debate, Parliament will most likely pass a resolution on the matter in February or March this year.
“We need a full investigation into the Pegasus spyware scandal. European democracy is being undermined and the EU should act accordingly. We cannot allow this to continue. Our democracy is under threat,” Sophie in 't Veld, a Dutch MEP from the Renew Europe faction, said.
