Public Relations Agency Spied on Foreign Ministry as Well
The news program 10vor10 revealed confidential documents yesterday evening which confirm the suspected spy attack on the GSoA. The papers describe 'urgent measures' such as 'observation of activist groups', 'public attacks' on their opponents and 'covert intelligence' within the federal bureaucracy, especially within the foreign ministry.
Up to now, Farner PR has commented publicly on this issue. However, Bruno Frick - christian-democratic senator and co-chair of one of Farner's front organisations - said in an interview that it was ok to lie about one's employer in order to secretly obtain information, as long as one does not lie about one's name.
