Pedro Sánchez's phone was infected by the program pegasus shortly after the migration crisis began at the Ceuta border in May 2021. The order of Judge José Luis Calama, of the National High Court, opens proceedings and reflects for the first time the exact date on which the telephone number of the President of the Government was infected, according to the reports handled by the National Cryptologic Center: for the first time on Wednesday, May 19, and for the second time on May 31, 2021. That is, shortly after the migration crisis began on the Moroccan border in Ceuta.
The key dates of the Pegasus case
That first infection of Sánchez's mobile was the one that also resulted in a greater theft of information. The first attack involved the theft of 2.3 gigabytes of information from the Prime Minister's phone.
The massive influx of people across the Ceuta border started on May 17, 2021. Those days, thousands of people entered the country irregularly in what the Government marked in retaliation from Rabat for the 'Ghali case'. A few weeks earlier the leader of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali, had arrived in Zaragoza and had been hospitalized in Logroño to be treated for a serious case of COVID-19. The second puncture, dated May 31, occurred a day before Gali will leave the country from Pamplona airport.
Judge Calama's order reflects that the first puncture of Pedro Sánchez's cell phone with the Pegasus espionage program was less than two days later. The second was on May 31. The content of the reports reflected in the car does not specify, however, on what day in June of that year the Defense Minister's telephone was attacked.
