Pakistani embassy upset at British surveillance
Guardian UK | Submitted by: Soylent
"Pakistan protested yesterday over the failure of the British government to confirm whether MI5 agents attempted to bug its high commission in London and whether Tony Blair's government authorised this covert action against an ally... The episode exposes an extraordinary degree of bungling and amateurism by a group of MI5 officers... Bugging of or phone taps on foreign embassies, high commissions or any other buildings in Britain requires a warrant from the home secretary, but the Home Office is adamant that David Blunkett did not sign one. If the Home Office is telling the truth, it suggests that MI5 was acting on a freelance basis, reawakening comparisions with the Spycatcher row in which rogue agents tried to destabilise the Wilson government in the 1970s."
