"Spy Cables: Greenpeace Among Intelligence Targets"

"Secret documents leaked to Al Jazeera reveal a routine practice among intelligence agencies to seek the cooperation of their peers in other countries to curb political dissent.

The Spy Cables reveal a torrent of politicised requests to South Africa's State Security Agency (SSA) for information on "rogue NGOs", politicians and exiled groups from intelligence agencies around the world - many of them declined as inappropriate by the South Africans. They include ... an application from South Korea for a "specific security assessment" of Greenpeace Director Kumi Naidoo, a South African citizen."
