Gamma Group

Gamma is a UK-based surveillance company that sells monitoring centres for communications and technical surveillance and intrusion technology.

The company tried to sell its ‘FinSpy’ surveillance technology to Egypt before the revolution, and its spyware has since been discovered in a total of 25 countries including Bahrain, Turkmenistan and Vietnam.

It has been alleged that its equipment appeared to have been used to continually monitor an Ethiopian political activist living in the UK, having left Ethiopia in 2009 due to “constant surveillance and harassment.”
