Germany to pour cash into mass surveillance

“Germany’s spies will be working with significantly increased resources next year if a budget report leaked to three media outlets is approved. The federal domestic intelligence agency, the Verfassungsschutz (BfV), is asking for an 18-percent budget boost in 2017, up to 307 million euros ($345 million), while the foreign intelligence agency BND wants a 12-percent rise to 808 million euros, according to a report released Thursday by the ‘Süddeutsche Zeitung’ along with public broadcasters NDR and WDR.”
