The Amnesty International Organisation Thursday issued a statement saying that it “categorically stands” by the findings of the Pegasus Project, amid calls for ban on the non-governmental organisation and allegations of “international conspiracy” to malign India.

"Amnesty International categorically stands by the findings of the Pegasus Project, and that the data is irrefutably linked to potential targets of NSO Group's Pegasus spyware. The false rumours being pushed on social media are intended to distract from the widespread unlawful targeting of journalists, activists and others that the Pegasus Project has revealed," Amnesty International said in a statement.

It said that the “data is irrefutably linked to potential targets of NSO Group’s Pegasus spyware.” “The false rumours being pushed on social media are intended to distract from the widespread unlawful targeting of journalists, activists and others that the Pegasus Project has revealed,” the statement read.

The comments by Amnesty International came after some media reports quoting a few Israreli journalists said that the human rights group has claimed that it never said that the recently leaked phone numbers was specifically a list of numbers targeted by Pegasus spyware.
