‘Absolute red alert’: Journalist Glenn Greenwald charged with cybercrimes in Brazil
Award-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald has been accused of hacking the cellphones of Brazilian prosecutors and public officials in a criminal case launched on Tuesday.
Federal prosecutors charged Greenwald with cybercrimes for his role in publishing leaked cellphone messages that have embarrassed the Bolsonaro administration and its anti-corruption task force, as well as charging him with membership of a “criminal organization.”
Greenwald had already butted heads with Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro, with the journalist referring to him as a “wannabe dictator,” and the president vowing not to expel the journalist from the country but instead to imprison him.
