Expert on the “Ott case”: – “I didn’t think something like that was possible”

The “Ott case” puts the Graz spy center in the spotlight. Head Paul Schliefsteiner on the necessary lessons from the scandal and the threat of mass surveillance.

“Kron”: Mr. Schliefsteiner, you have been investigating secret services and espionage for years. What was your first thought when you heard about the “Ott case”?
Paul Schliefsteiner: Even though we already knew a lot about the conditions in the BVT (Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution and the Combating of Terrorism, ed.), I did not think that something like this was possible in Austria. I was particularly surprised at the long period in which insider knowledge could flow. In any case, it does not have a good reflection on the Austrian state apparatus.
