The law enforcement lobbying campaign against encryption continues. Today it’s Europols director Rob Wainwright who is trying to make a case against privacy on BBC 5.
This is the same man who told the European Parliament that Europol is not going to investigate the alleged NSA hacking of the SWIFT (international bank transfer) system. The excuse he gave was not that Europol didn’t know about it, because it did. Very much so. It was that there had been no formal complaint from any member state.
So the EU police agency happily turned a blind eye to ongoing crime — when possibly committed by the NSA.
That will give you an indication about where the Europols sympathies lies. That is, not with the general public.
