Poland’s anti-corruption body purchased the Pegasus hacking software, developed by Israeli company NSO Group, after Poland’s leader met with then-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 2017, a leading Polish newspaper reported Monday.

The report in the liberal Gazeta Wyborcza said the Central Anticorruption Bureau (CBA) made the purchase a few months after a meeting between Netanyahu and the prime ministers of both Poland and Hungary. The report, which says the purchase was made illegally, cited both sources and materials obtained by opposition figures in the country.
