The Moroccan executive accessed the information of the French leader through the Pegasus project, an Israeli software that allows hacking cell phones, according to Le Monde newspaper.

The news caused uneasiness among local politicians who condemned this procedure and described it as unacceptable.

During a press conference, Prime Minister Jean Castex spoke about an ongoing investigation into the matter, without offering further details.

The head of the Foreign Trade portfolio, Franck Riester, called for stricter regulations of cyberspace and warned that ‘it is a challenge for our democratic societies.’

For his part, François de Rugy, former Minister of Ecological Transition, tweeted that he will bring the case to justice.

Both politicians were victims of cyber attacks by the Moroccan Government, according to Le Monde.

Recently Government Spokesman Gabriel Attal described as shocking the allegations of spying in several countries against journalists, government officials and activists, through the Israeli surveillance program.
