The US National Security Agency tapped the telephones of 29 Brazilian government top officials as well as waged economic espionage against the country by listening in to calls of those managing Brazilian economy, WikiLeaks claims in a new release.
A top secret NSA target list published by the whistleblowing website Wikileaks on July 4 contains 29 key Brazilian government phone numbers. The list of those selected for intensive interception includes not only President Dilma Rousseff but also her assistant, her secretary, her chief of staff, her Palace office and even the phone in her presidential jet.
The US National Security Agency also spied on several Brazilian Finance Ministers and even the Governor of the Brazilian Central Bank, it appears from the release.
The NSA economic targets allegedly include Nelson Henrique Barbosa Filho, the Minister of Planning, Budget and Management, who earlier was an Executive Secretary at Brazil's Ministry of Finance and Antonio Palocci, current president’s Chief of Staff, who served as Minister of Finance under former President Lula.
