Google engineer accuses NSA and GCHQ of subverting ‘judicial process’

A British engineer who works on anti-hacking systems at Google has furiously accused the UK and US spying agencies of “industrial scale subversion of the judicial process” by tapping the company’s internal networks.Mike Hearn, who says he worked for two years on the networks that replicate Google data between its different computing centres, says that “GCHQ [the British surveillance centre] turns out to be even worse than the NSA [the US National Security Agency]”. He added that he joined an American colleague, Brandon Downey, “in issuing a giant fuck you to the people [at the NSA and GCHQ] who made these slides”.
