Deutsche Telekom apparently didn’t stop at looking through the phone records of board members and journalists in its bid to end leaks. The German phone giant also tracked their movements and may have snooped into personal bank records, Der Spiegel reports. Top executives also worked with a detective agency run by members of the former East German secret police.
Prosecutors are investigating Deutsche Telekom’s spying activities, which first came to light last weekend. Investigators raided the company’s headquarters in Bonn yesterday. The company has admitted to looking through phone data from 2005-2006 but has denied other wrongdoing.
