Reaction to Yahoo Email Scans

Amnesty International

WASHINGTON - In response to reports that Yahoo secretly scanned customer emails for US intelligence Sherif Elsayed-Ali, Head of Technology and Human Rights at Amnesty International said:

"If true, this news will greatly undermine trust in the internet. For a company to secretly search all incoming emails of all its customers in response to a broad government directive would be a blow to privacy and a serious threat to freedom of expression.
