Wiretapping equipment detected near Russian Embassy in Norway

Norwegian journalists and experts in the field of telecommunications security believe that telephones of embassies of Russia and France in the Norwegian capital of Oslo could be tapped. 

According to Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten, diplomatic missions of the United Kingdom, Venezuela and Finland are also located in the area, where wiretapping equipment was used.

With the help of special equipment, Norwegian reporters detected numerous signs of so-called IMSI-interceptors near the buildings of the parliament, office and personal residence of the prime minister of Norway, embassies of the USA and Israel, the building of the Central Bank of Norway, as well as near the offices of several large law firms and financial institutions. After the publication of the controversial material, the equipment that Aftenposten employees used stopped catching signals proving the presence of wiretapping devices.

Earlier, Justice Minister of the Kingdom Anders Anundsen said that Norwegian law enforcement agencies could not be involved in such a large-scale surveillance program.
