AP — An Israeli company known for its sophisticated phone surveillance technology on Monday rejected accusations that its snooping software helped lead to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The NSO Group has faced similar claims in the past that its products were used to stifle dissent in other countries.
But the alleged connection to the Khashoggi killing is the most high-profile case to date, drawing new attention to the secretive company’s business practices and the Israeli government’s oversight of private defense contractors.
The latest case against NSO was spelled out in a lawsuit filed in an Israeli court Sunday by a Saudi dissident.
