The Attorney General’s Office (PGR) is currently trying to identify the companies that sell the software that was used to spy on journalists and activists across Mexico, and to whom those companies might have sold the software.

The Head of the Special Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Freedom of Expression (FEADLE) Ricardo Sánchez del Pozo, said in a press conference that an investigation is currently underway to find links between the infected devices and the culprits.

“We have asked the Scientific Police to investigate the phone numbers where the text messages containing the malware originated,” said Sánchez del Pozo.

Sánchez del Pozo also said that they are trying to track the location of these devices, while also trying to find a motive within the victim’s work for why they might have been targeted.

“All processes will be carried out with due diligence and in accordance with what the legal institutions have determined and will determine,” said Sánchez del Pozo.

Attorney General Raúl Cervantes Andrade has asked that the alleged victims and their attorneys be granted access at all times into the investigation.
