Die ECHELON-Hearings im EU-Parlament zeitigen die erwarteten

Echelon inquiry call threatens NZ surveillance network

New Zealand is concerned a satellite base station forming part of a
multinational electronic surveillance system could be exposed as
part of a European inquiry.

European parliamentarians have demanded a committee of inquiry be
set up to probe allegations that the United States is using the so-
called Echelon electronic surveillance system for industrial
espionage in Europe.

The Echelon network is said to include the Waihopai satellite station
near Blenheim, New Zealand. New Zealand Prime Minister Helen
Clark told Parliament yesterday that she was concerned it was under

Waihopai intercepts and passes on phone, fax and e-mail
communications from the Pacific region as part of an intelligence
alliance that includes Australia, the United States, Britain, and

Clark, who is Security Intelligence Service Minister, said she had
been assured information collected by the Marlborough base was not
being used for commercial purposes.

"We have received assurance from intelligence partners that they
don't either,'' she said.

Echelon is the codename believed to have been given to a secret US
Government project which would allow its National Security Agency
to intercept and monitor all forms of electronic communication.
