While these emails have been shared among activists online – the Global Voices Advocacy warns Angry Birds lovers that HT exploited holes in its software to track users during a demo for the Internal Security Forces – there has been no public confirmation by these agencies of whether they are using this system to monitor Lebanese citizens.Lack of transparency has led some activists to question how the bureau obtains cases, however, according to SKeyes' Firas Talhouk, the truth is less nefarious.This means, activists say, any case that so much as mentions the Internet. ISF representatives at the meeting however, dismissed allegations that the bureau was acting illegally by denying access to a lawyer.The bureau attempted to coerce Raidy to sign a pledge, saying he would not write about the company again.According to Talhouk, this was also something the bureau's head, Suzanne al-Hajj, agreed with. She has been quoted by multiple sources as saying the bureau should not be dealing with defamation cases.
