After recent NSA leaks, the German is now facing a new threat on the legal front. The German hacker group Chaos Computer Club has joined forces with the International League for Human Rights to file a criminal complaint against the government, based on recent revelations of mass electronic surveillance. We accuse US, British and German secret agents, their supervisors, the German Minister of the Interior as well as the German Chancelor of illegal and prohibited covert intelligence activities, the complaint reads, of violation of the right to privacy and obstruction of justice in office by bearing and cooperating with the electronic surveillance of German citizens by NSA and GCHQ. Our laws protect us and threatens those responsible for such surveillance with punishment, said Dr. Julius Mittenzwei, a practicing attorney with the CCC.
