Edward Snowden

Filed under: life — zproxy @ 10:44 pm

The Stasi could never gather enough guts to prosecute the KGB, what makes you think the current government of Germany – essentially a lapdog for Uncle Sam – would prosecute NSA?

treason according to theGerman Penal Code:

Whosoever […] allows a state secret to come to the attention of an unauthorised person or to become known to the public in order to prejudice the Federal Republic of Germany or benefit a foreign power and thereby creates a danger of serious prejudice to the external security of the Federal Republic of Germany, shall be liable to imprisonment of not less than one year.

Until now, we were reported merely as witnesses in the case, but now we shall be held responsible (for treason) like our unknown source(s) – as joint principals.

This is an attack on press freedom! The last charges of treason against journalists in Germany have been a very long time ago, notably the Spiegel Affair of 1962.

… The goverment has decided it is a good idea to store it all.

German Television Channel NDR does an exclusive interview with Edward Snowden.

… they effectively create “permanent records” of our daily activities, even in the absence of any wrongdoing on our part. This enables a capability called “retroactive investigation,”

Limited hangout?
