On August 26, 2014, the “Tages-Anzei­ger” por­tray­ed a Ber­ne­se com­pa­ny (“Your fri­end and hacker”). This com­pa­ny beca­me known thanks to publi­ca­ti­ons from Wiki­leaks becau­se it sup­plied sur­veil­lan­ce equip­ment to dic­ta­tor­ships. The fede­ral govern­ment is also said to be an important customer.

- Does their dual role pose a con­flict for the fede­ral government?

- How will the fede­ral govern­ment ensu­re in the future that Tro­jans (e‑bugs) only have the per­mit­ted capabilities?
