KEYNOTE Snowden Discusses Surveillance of Kashoggi and Irish Journalists


The organisers of the EU Cyber Summit believe that their forthcoming guest speaker, Edward Snowden will shed light on the tactics employed in the death of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey.

Snowden who is President of the Freedom of the Press Foundation will be interviewed by Paul C Dwyer, President of the International Cyber Threat Task Force live from his exile in Moscow during the EU Cyber Summit which takes place on October 24th 2018 at the Helix in DCU in Dublin. 

Commenting on this, Paul C Dwyer said: ‘Snowden is an advocate of privacy and the investigative journalism. Of course that means being able to protect sources. In light of recent revelations of mass surveillance in Ireland and the recent arrest of a documentary film maker in Northern Ireland who was covering the Loughinisland case and collusion between paramilitaries and the British Government, this is a topic we will focus on

Paul C Dwyer went on to say: ‘”We will take a dive deeper on the surveillance of journalists  and explore how the surveillance tactics of Jamal Kashoggi was carried out and how it likely led to his gruesome demise”

Edward Snowden is a former Central Intelligence Agency employee. His NSA (National Security Agency) leaks have changed the way the cyber security world works today.

“Snowden should be brought back from Russia and given due process, and I think the proper outcome would be that he be given a death sentence” Mike Pompeo – US Secretary of State 

“Snowden has made many sacrifices and takes the ultimate risk day by day to enlighten the world. His asylum in Moscow expires in 2020 and the fear is he will be gift wrapped and handed to Trump as a card to play for his base in the 2020 elections. We will raise the issue of Snowden getting asylum in Ireland”. Paul C Dwyer

Edward will be the keynote speaker at the EU Cyber Summit. He will speak about our changing world. He will talk openly about Donald Trump, North Korea and ongoing concerns about the cyber threats to democracy. His interview will be a no holds barred discussion.

Edward Snowden is an American computer professional, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee, and former contractor for the United States government. His disclosures revealed numerous global surveillance programmes, many run by the NSA and the Five Eyes Intelligence Alliance with the cooperation of telecommunication companies and European governments.

In 2013, Snowden was hired by an NSA contractor, Booz Allen Hamilton, after previous employment with Dell and the CIA.  Snowden came to international attention after stories based on the material appeared in The Guardian and The Washington Post. Further disclosures were made by other publications including Der Spiegel and The New York Times.

In the summer of 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice unsealed charges against Snowden of two counts of violating the Espionage Act of 1917 and theft of government property. He lives in an undisclosed location in Moscow where he continues to seek asylum elsewhere in the world. Mr Snowden, who is wanted in the United States for espionage, fled to Russia in 2013 after leaking thousands of classified documents related to the NSA’s electronic eavesdropping program. He has been living in an undisclosed location in Moscow ever since.

Ends.
