Amesys facing Judicial Inquiry

The French company that sold mass surveillance equipment to Quddafi is now the subject of a judicial probe in its home country. According to Ryan Gallagher, writing for “future tense” in Slate, “The revelation caused outrage in France, with politicians calling for a parliamentary inquiry into any role the French government might have played in helping set up the 2007 deal, reportedly worth more than $25 million.”

My original comments on this situation are here. It is heartening to know that such abject misanthropy can still draw outrage from governments and their people.
