Israel labels Palestinian human rights groups as terrorist organisations after Pegasus spyware attack (E1074)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Ubai Al-Aboudi, one of the Palestinian activists targeted by Pegasus Spyware and executive director of the Bisan Centre for Research and Development – one of the bodies Israel has labelled a terrorist organisation. He discusses his reaction after finding out that he had been hacked using Pegasus Spyware. He also talks about Israel’s draconian control over Palestinian communications, why he believes Israel labelled his group and five others as terrorist organisations, the Palestinian Authority’s arguably complicit persecution of Palestinian activists alongside Israel, and much more. Finally, we speak to Nancy Hollander, lawyer for Guantanamo Bay prisoners such as Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri and Mohamedou Ould Slahi. She discusses the case of Majid Khan and the first public testimony of the experience at Guantanamo Bay, shocking torture methods used by the US at the prison and other black sites around the world, the 26 people at Guantanamo Bay not charged with anything, the US bribery campaign in Pakistan, the persecution of Julian Assange, and much more.
