EU demands clarification on PRISM

Published:Tuesday | June 11, 2013 | 12:49 PM

The European Union (EU) is demanding reassurance that the rights of Europeans aren’t being infringed by the United States (US) surveillance program (PRISM).



The EU says the US government needs to give clarity on whether authorisation was given to use PRISM to transfer a bulk of data, or data targeting, of specific individuals.



Last week former CIA agent Edward Snowden leaked information that the Government has been capturing people's call and internet data without their knowledge.



Snowden’s employer, and defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton says he fired the communications analyst for violating its ethics code.



United States officials are currently preparing to charge Snowden whose whereabouts have now become unknown after he left a hotel in Hong Kong.
