Consortium behind Pegasus Project wins EU journalism prize

BRUSSELS (AP) — The consortium of journalists behind the Pegasus Project investigation into malware from Israel-based NSO Group that provided further evidence that it was used to spy on journalists, human rights activists and political dissidents has won the top European Union journalism prize. The European Parliament said Thursday that the “unprecedented leak of more than 50,000 phone numbers selected for surveillance by the customers of the Israeli company NSO Group shows how this technology has been systematically abused for years.” The list was obtained by the Paris-based journalism nonprofit Forbidden Stories and the human rights group Amnesty International.
