Australia mass surveillance ‘among most aggressive’

Mr Greenwald was one of the reporters who broke the 2013 story on internet surveillance by the UK and US.
He told broadcaster ABC that Australia was “probably the country that has got away with things the most” following those revelations.
But he said “we intend to change” that, implying there could be further leaks.
Mr Greenwald was speaking on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Lateline programme on Thursday night via videolink from Rio de Janeiro.
He said Australia was “one of the most aggressive countries that engage in mass surveillance as a member of the Five Eyes Partnership”, a reference to the intelligence network established by Australia, US, UK, New Zealand and Canada.
“There are interesting documents about what Australia is doing to privacy rights – not just to their own citizens,” he said, adding that he plans to release his reports “as soon as we can”.
