EU company admits blame for sale of phone-snooping gadgets to Iran

BRUSSELS (EUOBSERVER) – Nokia-Siemens Networks on Wednesday (2 June) admitted its share of the blame for Iran’s brutal crack-down on anti-government demonstrators last year after selling mobile phone surveillance to the authoritarian regime.

“We absolutely do find ourselves in a tricky situation and need the help of people in this room to help us navigate in these challenging times,” Barry French, head of marketing and corporate affairs with Nokia-Siemens Networks, told MEPs during a hearing on human rights and new information technologies.
