#IMSIcatchers | Oslo under surveillance

#PST Norway spied on the countries own government, financial industry and foreign embassies in #Oslo. I base this on OSINT information having followed the case ever since the newspaper Aftenposten revealed the existence of IMSI catchers in central parts of the capital. The same was discovered in Stockholm. London and all over the US.

PST tried, in vain, to discredit the newspaper and their experts. (Later they apologized to the latter, Delma, a British security firm). Then they took part in a white wash investigation which they later “closed”. The capital police was also caught blatantly lying about the frequency of their use of the technology.

Most pundits speculated that there was only two categories of suspects. criminals and foreign Intelligence services. I contend that there is a third. Namely our own Norwegian intel services. Their behavior, lies and spins makes it the most reasonable conclusion. It is noteworthy to mention that IMSI catchers are produced by a US company in Florida, and the fact that Norway has a very special relationship with the Americans. Norway is in fact one of nine countries in the so called 9 Eyes Alliance.

It is my sincere hope that Aftenposten and other newspapers continue to work on this case, because the implications if I am correct are enormous. It is not the first time the intelligence services in Norway have been caught spying on their own government. Anonymous Norway will continue to try to “find” evidence, sharing this information with media.

For the more nerdy of you, here is an article with loads of technical information and links to sources that documents each and every word in this post.
