3 mayors said targeted by police using NSO spyware despite no evidence of offenses

At least three city mayors and members of their families were targeted by Israel Police with spyware made by the controversial NSO Group in an attempt to find indications of criminal activity, the Calcalist website reported Sunday.

Information gleaned by targeting the mayors’ family members with the Pegasus spyware revealed activity that, though apparently not criminal, was used to justify requests for wiretaps on the mayors. That in turn led to their being taken into custody and interrogated, but all the cases were eventually closed, according to the report.
