U.S. Federal prosecutors accused two former employees of Twitter in spying in Saudi Arabia.
Alzamora Ali (Ali Alzabarah) and Abramo of Ahmad (Ahmad Abouammo) used their access to the database of social networks to gather confidential and private information about dissidents, the Saudi regime, according to the Ministry of justice.
The case, filed in Federal court in San Francisco, underscores accusations against the government of Saudi Arabia, which is trying to control the voices against the regime abroad. The charges, of course, will also resume testing technology companies to protect the privacy of its users.
Attorney David Anderson noted that the U.S. government will not allow companies or technologies become a tool of foreign repression and violation of American laws.
