According to the latest leaks by NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, the Land down Under is guilty of spying on its people too. The secret 2008 5-Eyes document reveals that Australia offered to share its citizens’ private online data with its allies. This has caused outrage among most Aussies
Australia Shared its Citizens’ Private Data with its Allies
Edward Snowden has something new to tell us. The Australian spy agency par excellence shared information regarding the nation’s citizens with many of its allies. And this blatant act of privacy invasion took place half a decade ago. The agency discussedissues about medicine, law and religious affiliation that were connected to the ordinary people of Australia with its cohorts.
This strictly contravenes legal boundaries. The DSD, which is Australia’s main intelligence center issued a statement to the effect that it has a right to share the info with its partners. It acted as if such a minor amount of prying didn’t matter at all.
The basic problem is that of metadata. The undeleted and uncensored information generated by users was given to other sources for observation purposes. The DSD along with four other Western nations engaged in spying on the people of Australia.
Known collectively as 5-Eyes, these countriesinclude in their ambit: the United States, Great Britain, New Zealand and Canada. The details regarding the revealing of vital dataare pretty complex. While many government representatives say that the data was minimized, there is evidence to the contrary. Meanwhile, the Greens Party and senate member, Nick Xenophon are calling the government’s accountability into question after this scandal of sorts.
